About the Author:

Michael Campbell is a writer and pianist. A California native, he is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Amherst College and holds a doctorate from Peabody Conservatory, where he studied piano with Leon Fleisher. As a commercial musician, he has assisted such artists as Angela Lansbury, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Bob Hope, Redd Foxx, Ethel Merman and Don McLean. As a concert pianist, he has performed a broad range of repertoire, including his own transcriptions of recordings by Art Tatum, Jelly Roll Morton and other legendary jazz pianists.

Review:

"My overall impression is extremely positive. I'm very impressed with the text. Three major strengths: a) Tone is just right for undergraduate non-music majors b) Definitions are concise and clear c) Supporting integrated materials are superb ... Really: well done and Bravo to the authors!" "MUSIC is the best single-volume resource I've discovered for teaching music appreciation at the undergraduate level. It is more than a book: it is a compendium of integrated multimedia resources that sets the standard for what this topic requires."-Gerald Custer, Wayne State University

"Overall, I feel the text worked well for my class and my students. One of the major strengths was the layout of the text, with the vocabulary and definitions delineated from the body of the text, the clear section headings, and the informal (for lack of a better word) overall design. The [active] listening guides were excellent and easy for a non-musician to understand. Finally, the pricing of the text is excellent."-Maya Ginsberg, San Diego State University

"I can't offer enough praise for this text, truly. Three strengths: 1) The coherent integration of recurring concepts. I felt like it has the effect of reinforcing concepts very effectively. 2) The concrete nature of the discussion. Abstract terms and concepts are unavoidable in discussion and abstract, temporal art form such as music, but this book does so in most concrete terms. Metaphors (bop = sushi) are excellent. 3) The accessibility of concepts. I think the rhetoric of using the simple to teach the complex (something I continually espouse) is a huge strength."-Paul Sladky, Augusta State University

"In a field that contains an increasing number of textbooks whose worth varies widely, Michael Campbell's MUSIC stands out as one of the better examples."-John Guinn, Wayne State University

"Campbell is strong in terms of being clear and not writing over the students' heads. Some of my students are still learning how to be good students, so the clarity of the stated learning outcomes at the beginning of each chapter is very helpful. The way the text tries to relate classical music to current trends is really helpful."-Jennie Dorris, Red Rocks Community College
