AbstractThis document presents a music analysis tool which illuminates structural elements of Paul Hindemith's Symphony in B-flat for Concert Band. Designed by the author, this type of visual tool is called a Music Analysis Profile and will henceforth be referred to as a MAP.This study offers a historical perspective of visual music analysis models, examines the development of the author's model, and explores an analysis of the Hindemith Symphony through MAP examples. This project is designed to enhance understanding and appreciation of this composition in the following contexts: music rehearsals, classrooms, pre/post concert discussions, and performances. In such contexts, the purpose and usefulness of a MAP as a useful tool is exemplified.
