Abstract: 

In his article "Teaching Phrase Rhythm through Minuets from Haydn's String Quartets," Ryan McClelland includes an extensive reference to my presentation on hypermeter in chapter 11 of my textbook, Harmony in Context (New York: McGraw-Hill, 2003). I appreciate Prof. McClelland's attention to my work, as well as his own presentation on the pedagogy of phrase rhythm. I would like to provide commentaries to some particular points in his discussion of my chapter 11.
