The World of Music offers a diverse and entertaining recordings package and an approach that emphasizes the progressive development of listening skills. Students are introduced to music elements through simpler music styles and familiar recordings and gradually build up to the most rigorous forms of Western music. The structure of the text provides an alternative to traditional music appreciation texts while still successfully investing readers with the skills necessary to listen to all music with knowledge and sophistication.

About the Author:

Dr. David Willoughby, Professor Emeritus of Music at Eastern New Mexico University and former Dean of its College of Fine Arts, retired in 1993 after twenty years of service. He moved to Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania and immediately was named Head of the Music Department at Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, a position he held for three years. From 1970-1973, he held the position of Assistant Director of the Ford Foundation/ MENC Contemporary Music Project, where, among other responsibilities, he served as Editor of the CMP Newsletter. From 1960-1970, he was Assistant/Associate Professor of Music at Elizabethtown College. Willoughby is now Minister of Music at the Church of the Brethren in Elizabethtown, where he directs the Adult Choir and the Bell Choir. He continues to play double bass and serves as Editor of the Newsletter of The College Music Society (CMS). The fourth edition of his book, The World of Music, has just been published by McGraw-Hill. Regarding CMS, he serves on the Council of Past Presidents, having served as President in 1987 and 1988. Previously, he was Board member for Music and General Studies (1980-1985) and a member of the Executive Committee (1986-1989). He served as Director of the Wingspread Conference on Music in General Studies (1981) and of the first four summer Institutes for Music in General Studies, Boulder, Colorado (1982-1985). (It was this Conference on Music in General Studies and these Institutes that prompted the first conversations, in 1985, that led to the first edition of The World of Music.)
