What are instructors saying about Listen to This and MyMusicLab?


“The focus is on the music! The musical elements and historical understanding are

an out growth of the music,rather than the music becoming examples of the elements

and history.” - Janet Barnard, Clovis Community College


“Students expect rich web support for their textbooks, and MyMusicLab is exquisite

support, especially the guided listening feature.”- Dominic A. Aquila, Schoolcraft College


And what do the students think?

understandthe different elements of music.” - Nick McCormick, Business Management Major, Wayne State College


“I liked the listening guides the most. They were very helpful and easy to understand.”- Caleigh Cronan, Spanish Major, Harding University


“Quizzing myself with the listening activities helped my grades immensely. I'm not a music person, but MyMusicLab helped me to earn an A.” - Student, University of North Texas 


“I loved the listening guides the best because they had examples, and explanation, so that you could understand and follow what you were listening to better, in terms of the musical vocabulary.” - Student, University of Massachusetts, Boston
