|The Schillinger System of Musical Composition - an illustrated guide to Joseph Schillinger's approach to music composition|

The site that you have linked concerning "The Schillinger System of Musical Composition" is NOT an accurate depiction of the system! The mathematical basis is but a very small percentage of what the system offers to the composer. I have been studying The Schillinger System for over two years, have written several works using the system, and have gained an extraordinary understanding of my craft through the system. This understanding has very little to do with the mathematics involved in the system. By refering to "The Schillinger System" as a mathematical approach to music composition you give the reader a sense that your/their site thoroughly understands the work. What that statement really shows is that your/their site did very little research concerning Schillingers system.

This is an amazing find; read the Bio page first! Unfortunately, the site itself is very low on actual information beyond an introduction to Schillinger's methods and concept and a bibliography that points to Amazon.com, but I will tell you this much, I'm not the sort who considers a book simply because it told a good yarn in a teaser, but THIS teaser tells a really good yarn! Consider: Schillinger was Gershwin's tutor ...
