Based on five fundamentals introduced in the beginning of the book, Bonds analyzes the great works of the Western repertoire, along with related works in popular, jazz, and world music. Hoping to motivate and inspire students in a lifelong interest in all musical forms, Bonds proceeds chronologically through time, and offers a true listening approach. Within each section, each chapter focuses on a single work, bringing in related information about the composer and his/her times, as needed. The chapters focus on a series of Listening Guides that offer richer analysis and more detailed guidance than any other text, and sidebars on technology and music, the music business, and contemporary culture also enhance the book.
