Designed for and by today's students, MUSIC was developed with feedback from hundreds of students to provide a more engaging and accessible solution that appeals to different learning styles. This full-color, dramatically designed and illustrated, and concise text includes a full suite of learning aids to accommodate your busy lifestyle, including unit-by-unit study cards, self-quizzes, interactive listening guides, demos of musical elements, downloadable flashcards, and an interactive eBook--all in an easy-to-use CourseMate website. MUSIC integrates classical works and vernacular music into a student-friendly music appreciation text that surveys the history of music. You will find its organization, content, and musical selections to be highly accessible. MUSIC introduces a broad range of styles and genres from the Middle Ages through the twenty-first century, presenting musical examples as elements in a soundscape of a particular place and time. In the process, it offers more extensive coverage of vernacular traditions throughout music history, the changing notions of classical and vernacular music, and the connections and contrasts between them. The result is a well-rounded view of musical life in each era. To facilitate this process, examples that highlight connections and contrasts with familiar popular music are juxtaposed throughout the book. This varied musical mix serves several purposes. Familiar music provides concrete illustrations of new terms and concepts. Numerous vernacular examples provide a more balanced picture of musical life and encourage your appreciation of music from each tradition on its own terms. Boundaries and bonds between traditions, styles, and generations come into sharper focus. In both content and design, MUSIC aims to meet the course challenges of cost, brevity, and relevance.
