Synopsis: Music in Our World is the first text in music appreciation completely devoted to the study of music elements and to investing students with active listening skills.
The text examines each musical element from a number of angles - completely integrating world music throughout the discussion. The three chapters on Melody, for example, cite the work of Hildegard of Bingen, Ravi Shankar, and Giacomo Puccini.
This unique, elements-based approach engages students in actively listening to the broadest range of music available for music appreciation.
