Summary

In this text/workbook designed for one-semester music fundamentals courses for non-majors, readers will learn the rudiments of music theory as they methodically explore how music is organized and perceived as listeners, performers, critical thinkers, and composers. Research from the field ofmusic perception and cognition suggests that teaching music through a "sound to symbol" approach is an effective way of teaching both musical thought and music knowledge-a perspective that is just the opposite of what is currently found in music fundamentals texts. Using a perceptual orientationimproves the development of aural acuity and links student's intuitive understanding of music to conceptual knowledge. While the authors' approach is influenced by the Kodaly concept of music education, the text does not presuppose familiarity with Kodaly studies and can easily be used without it. The text's most important innovation is the early emphasis on active music-making, which is supported by workbookactivities. At the same time, the text clearly covers all of the topics found in music fundamentals courses. To support this innovative approach, and because this course is often taught by teaching assistants and adjuncts, the authors have written an Instructor's Manual that includes lesson plans,PowerPoint slides, teaching tips on how to assess learning in the course, and suggestions for scoring tests. The text includes a fold-out, laminated keyboard, an audio CD of songs discussed in the text, and a Technology CD that contains examples and exercises to supplement the text.
