I'm determined to compose at least a few entire pieces on piano. I have the determination but, slightly more than a basic knowledge of theory. I don't what some new age music theory made easy type book. I'm looking for books devoted to explaining advanced classical theory, anyone have any tips? Thanks

Im taking music as a major, first book we used was Elimentary Rudiments of music.
it does a pretty good job, gets into some advanced stuff, no counterpoint and all but enough to get you composing, thats for sure

the older you do get the more rules they're gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin' man, L-I-V-I-N.

At the moment I'm reading and doing the exercises from william russo's "Composing - A new Approach." It's pretty good imo and it's pretty easy on the theory.
