Summary

LISTENING TO MUSIC covers all the major topics of a typical music appreciation course, but adds two important pedagogical advantages: one, a CD in each student copy of the text contains all of the music discussed in Chapters 1-3, which covers the elements (or "fundamentals") of music, and two, listening exercises in the text. Chronologically ordered, this text covers traditional Western music from medieval to modern. Concluding chapters discuss popular and world music. Musical examples from each historical period are discussed within their social context. This book is available packaged with a 2 or 6-CD Set. See Companion Products for details.
