Haverstick’s first book, “The Form of No Forms,” was written in 1984, and covers Western music theory from basic scales and chords, to complex jazz progressions, modes, and polytonal concepts.
“Neil has opened a door for students to go beyond the academics of playing into the purpose of music… to get the most out of themselves. A real book!”
“Very clear, comprehensive approach to jazz theory, all done in an orderly, detailed fashion… a great book.”
“You have a very excellent book here, one that’s long overdue.”
“…ingenious paraphrases of Zen metaphors applied to music.”
