The World of Music is a music appreciation book designed for instructors who want to focus on listening to music as it exists in the real world of their students. Expanding the traditional repertoire used for music study, this popular text begins with American folk, religious, jazz, popular, and ethnic music before introducing some world music and concluding with a thorough overview of Western classical music. The approach captures the essence of each repertoire, and equips students to recognize different styles, appreciate their different functions, and possess a solid foundation for a lifetime of musical appreciation.

From 1970-1973, he held the position of Assistant Director of the Ford Foundation/ MENC Contemporary Music Project, where, among other responsibilities, he served as Editor of the CMP Newsletter. From 1960-1970, he was Assistant/Associate Professor of Music at Elizabethtown College. Willoughby is now Minister of Music at the Church of the Brethren in Elizabethtown, where he directs the Adult Choir and the Bell Choir. He continues to play double bass and serves as Editor of the Newsletter of The College Music Society (CMS). The fourth edition of his book, The World of Music, has just been published by McGraw-Hill. Regarding CMS, he serves on the Council of Past Presidents, having served as President in 1987 and 1988. Previously, he was Board member for Music and General Studies (1980-1985) and a member of the Executive Committee (1986-1989).
