This is the first text in music appreciation completely devoted to the study of music elements and to investing students with active listening skills. It examines each musical element from a number of angles, completely integrating world music throughout the discussion. This unique, elements-based approach engages students in actively listening to the broadest range of music available for music appreciation. The focus is on active listening, teaching students to listen to and appreciate music, regardless of its origin.*The book is organized by musical elements (rhythm, melody, harmony, form, etc) instead of musical history.*Short essays present detailed information about the topics covered in each chapter.*
