Including Western music from the medieval period to the present day, Anthology for Analysis and Performance: For Use in the Theory Classroom provides a vast repertory of scores for study in the music theory class. To make music theory relevant to students, the anthology contains musical examples that students will know from their individual performance studies and can perform live in class. Author Matthew Bribitzer-Stull includes pieces that students are familiar with to help them connect music to theoretical concepts on an aural and intellectual level as they learn how music works. A detailed index serves as an invaluable resource for instructors wishing to locate specific compositional materials and techniques.
