  1. Hello,

    I bought the “Upper Structure Triads Piano Voicings” bundle and it is very interesting and inspiring.
    I have a problem with the following thing though .
    In the UST Vol 1 for example, why is there a “M” ( uppercase ) to indicate a minor 7 chord ?
    Page 32 it is written :

    Preparing the IV of IIm7

    AM7 IV of IIM7 and then Major triad

    instead of (if i’m not wrong) :

    Am7 IV of IIm7 and then Major triad

    All examples that follow are the same.
    Or did I miss something ?
    Thanks for your answer



    1. Yes, the font we were using back then did not have a lower case m so I used a smaller font with the uppercased M (it’s something to fix in a future edition of the book) I got so used at seeing the small M that I forgot about it. Just remember that the major triads never have an M. Thanks for the feedback.


  2. Hello,
    First excuse my basic English.
    I am trying to start to use the great books TJSPB Reharm version and understand the analysis.

    I found on page 6:
    4. A dotted bracket indicates a II-SubV or a SubII to V progression
    In the image correspond to Cm7 to B7 chords
    – Can you please explain what SubV and SubII means?
    – The mentioned “II” seems to be the “Cm7”. II is a major chord. Cm7 is minor so it should be “ii” instead of “II”?
    – Cm7 is the second (II or ii) grade of Bb?

    I am confused with subV, etc.

    Any help is appreciated.



    1. I think you should watch the videos on our youtube channel we explain all the concepts in detail.
      But basically arrows indicate dominant to tonic, brackets subdominant to dominants
      Solid lines indicate movements of Perfect fifths down and dashed lines movements of half step down.


  3. I purchased the Target Notes and Upper Structures add-ons.
    The Target Notes menu appears in a dark mode making it extremely difficult to see.
    The Upper Structures menu is white initially and turns dark when “Show Upper Structures” is selected. Please help.

    Thank you


    1. Hi Michael, I have already fixed it and sent it to the MacAppStore for review. It usually takes one or two days to become available. If you bought it from us it is already there. Thanks for the feedback.


  4. Hi, I’m hector. I have the application mapping tonal harmony on the computer and on the tablet and I don’t see how to export the work I do on the computer to the tablet.


    1. Hi Hector, use the Open button and find and select the progressions you want to export. Then use the button export selected. This will save an xml file you can air drop to your iPad. Once you have it there (find it on your Files app if you drop them there) and using the share button find the option that says Open In Mapping Tonal Harmony


  5. Thank you for your reply. The score is not wrong. I think that skipping to the second ending is not working correctly. If you delete the first ending mark and set it one measure earlier, this time you will run out of one measure. If you put it back, it will be played one more measure. I think it’s not a score defect, but an application defect. Please verify.


  6. Hello there,
    I bought the 1000 standards XML file library.
    I tried importing the file on both Sibelius and Finale and for some reason both softwares do not support the file. Does the XML file work on any other software at all? How do I use/import it?
    Thank you,

    Kind regards,
    Livio Polisano.
