Review:

"The perfect choice if you are teaching a course in music appreciation for non-music majors and your time is limited." Donald Olah, Clarion University

 

"This is a modern textbook with lots of visual and non-linear descriptions. It would appeal to a contemporary student who is used to getting most material online." Claire Boge, Miami University

 

"A friendly, well illustrated survey with brief sections, many formats of learning, and an extensive discussion of pop music." Jeff Morris, Texas A&M University

 

"This is an accessible music appreciation text my students have been using for over a decade." Amy Black, Clayton State University
