Playing the piano has been a major part of my life. Although I am an excellent sight-reader, my efforts at learning the foundations of musical harmony have been disappointing. By nature, I want to understand structure and so it is surprising to me that I have let this go for so long. This site is intended to set the framework for learning the musical syntax and harmony on which Bach built his great works of counterpoint—the Fuge. My goal is that this will expand my understanding of the Bach works that I play and improve my interpretation of his works.
