In both content and design, MUSIC aims to meet the course challenges of cost, brevity, and relevance to students. Created through a "student-tested, faculty-approved" review process with hundreds of students and 200 faculty, MUSIC is an engaging and accessible solution to the diverse lifestyles of today’s learners. MUSIC integrates classical works and vernacular music by introducing a broad range of styles and genres from the Middle Ages through the twenty-first century and the connections and contrasts between them. The result is a well-rounded view of musical life in each era. MUSIC is designed to meet the needs of instructors who want to give their students an inexpensive and brief text that has an appealing magazine style with short chapters that can easily be read in a sitting, as well as a strong technology component. The text is accompanied by an audio CD set, an interactive eBook, and a CourseMate website with streaming music, interactive listening guides, interactive demos of musical elements, interactive style comparisons, quizzing, flashcards, and more.
