Charles Hoffer is Professor of Music at the University of Florida in Gainesville. He formerly taught at Indiana University, served as president of the Music Educators National Conference, and is an established author of books and articles about music.Review:
"Its three greatest strengths to me are: 1: the multimedia presentation, 2: the succinctness of the text and CDS, and 3: the examples both audio and visual (art work reproductions.) ... I chose the book because of the multimedia component, and also as a music educator, my respect for Dr. Hoffer. ... I am more likely to purchase this text with the new changes."
"The chapters are a perfect length for my students. The information is organized in a useful and logical fashion and the amount of detail is ideal. ... Students have the resources to answer their own questions with ease. ... The chapters on basic Western music history are excellent. ... The bios, coda sections, listening guides, definitions and visual examples are fantastic."
"These [features of MusicListeningNow] are valuable improvements. ... Using [it] to further illustrate concepts which are frequently new and confusing to the students is an excellent idea."
