Summary

LISTENING TO MUSIC is designed to help develop and refine your listening skills and to inspire a lifelong appreciation of music. Author and award-winning scholar-teacher Craig Wright, who has taught Music Appreciation courses for more than 35 years, is consistently praised by reviewers for his unparalleled accuracy and his clear, direct conversational style. Throughout the book, Wright incorporates comparisons between pop and classical music and uses examples from popular artists to illustrate core concepts. This chronological text succinctly covers traditional Western music from medieval to modern, discussing examples from each historical period within their social contexts and the construction of each piece. Later chapters cover popular music, its impact on musical globalization, and comparisons between Western and non-Western music. LISTENING TO MUSIC is the only text that provides Craig Wright's own Listening Exercises, which help you focus on important musical elements and episodes. A full set of optional online resources includes Active Listening Guides, streaming music, an interactive eBook, quizzing, and more. All of the music discussed in the text is also available on CD and on Sony Music download cards.
