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.
