"The first chapter is far superior [to the text in use]. I feel that students need an explanation of the current state of popular music with comparisons to the past. . . . Today's students are engrossed in pop music and do not have even a basic understanding of why things are. Because students are entrenched in pop music, many of them are not interested in delving into topics that challenge the ideologies they are accustomed to. I believe your text takes an approach that addresses the aforementioned statement."From the Publisher:
Listening To Music is designed to help develop and refine the listening skills of your students and inspire a lifelong appreciation of music. Author and award-winning scholar-teacher Craig Wright, who has taught Music Appreciation courses for more than 35 years, is consistently praised by reviewers and other professors for his unparalleled accuracy and his clear, direct, conversational style. Throughout the book, Wright connects with today's students by incorporating comparisons between pop and classical music and by using examples from popular artists to illustrate core concepts. This chronological text succinctly covers traditional Western music from medieval to modern, discussing examples from each historical period within their social contexts and the construction of each piece. Later chapters cover popular music, its impact on musical globalization, and comparisons between Western and non-Western music. Listening To Music is the only text that provides Craig Wright's own Listening Exercises, in the book and online, which help students focus on important musical elements and episodes. A free CD, packaged with each printed copy of the text, includes all of the musical examples for the Part 1 listening exercises. A full set of optional online student resources includes Active Listening Guides, streaming music, an interactive eBook, quizzing, and more - all to challenge your students. All of the music discussed in the text is also available on CD and on Sony Music download cards.
