Review:

"I feel the greatest strength of the textbook, and the one that prompted my selection of it, was the balanced treatment of the key components: music fundamentals; history of western European art music; American popular music; and world music. Although I would welcome more expansive treatment of world music, this volume provides much better treatment than the cursory nod provided in most other music appreciation textbooks."

"It has the big picture. Good introduction to rudiments of music. The fact that it includes the ethno music I want to teach is a big plus. ... While Charles Hoffer's text focuses primarily on Western art music, the text includes music from popular styles and world music, and presents the information in a way that builds students' familiarity from the very general to a more technical level of engagement."
