9780393918281: Soundscapes: Exploring Music in a Changing World (Third Edition)

Listening without boundaries―Total Access to the music of the world.

Music doesn’t stop at the border, and neither should your textbook. This text gives students a global sense of music and its significance across cultures by introducing them to a diverse repertoire and developing listening skills applicable to all music. An accessible three-part model for listening―sound, setting, and significance―facilitates comparisons of various musical styles and meanings, and with Total Access, Soundscapes provides the digital resources students need to discover new music in a digitally connected world.
