This work is primarily theoretical, though there are many short pieces for various instruments that are meant to display good and bad aspects of writing. There are also short exercises for individual instruments, e.g. violin, flute, oboe, viola, cello, piano, etc. that are meant to display aspects of playing from chord symbols, playing modulations, aspects of capriccio playing, etc. There are also some short examples of vocal quartet or string quartet writing as examples of voicing. These pieces have not been tagged individually, because in most cases they are too short to constitute a whole piece as such.
