Praise for the Applied Professional Harmony Series

Henry Mancini, 4x Winner of the Academy Awards (Oscar) and 20 Grammy's
Peter Alexander in his series, Applied Professional Harmony, has created what I feel will be standard text in schools for many years to come. In a thoroughly readable style, he has managed the neat trick of erasing the lines between so called 'popular' music and 'classical' music. Read and Learn.

John Tesh, 6X Emmy Winner and 4 Gold Albums
If I had these books when I was in college, I'd have stayed in music school.

Praise for Professional Orchestration Volume 1

Jerry Goldsmith, Academy and Emmy Award Winning Composer
The best orchestration book since Forsyth.

Conrad Pope, Multi-Award Winning Orchestrator
Peter Alexander was the "real deal". Though I'm not a "fan" of most orchestration books, Peter's is one that I think many musicians will find to be not only informative but inspiring as well.

Bruce Broughton, Emmy Award Winning Composer
Professional Orchestration offers more opportunities to see and hear the combinations which formerly could only be imagined.

Paul Thomson, Synesthesia (UK), Winner, Aerial and Montreux Advertising Festival Awards
Every time I open this book I learn something new.
