Overview

About the Product

The essential skills for listening to, understanding, and enjoying music The Enjoyment of Music, Essential Listening Edition, weaves together a concise text and rich media resources in a compact and affordable package that gives students all they need for an enriched listening experience. The new Fourth Edition features enhanced pedagogy built around new listening objectives and Listening Challenge online activities, a revised repertory that includes popular teaching pieces, and streamlined Listening Guides that make it easier for students to identify the important things to listen for in each selection.

Features

  • The best framework for developing student listening skills Each element of the Enjoyment of Music, Essential Listening package works in concert to help students develop the listening skills needed to actively listen to and appreciate music. After building a sound foundation in the Materials of Music with online Materials of Music tutorials, students follow a clear pedagogical sequence through each style period. The sequence culminates in an activity challenging students to apply what they have heard and learned to a piece not covered in the book. This is listening preparation for a world beyond the classroom walls.

  • Revised repertory with popular favorites Extensive user feedback and instructor interviews led to a revised repertory—with 13 new selections out of 48—to include pieces that are even more teachable and student-friendly. Highlights include Bach’s “Little” Organ Fugue in G Minor, a movement from Brahms’s German Requiem, and the opening of Dvorak’s American String Quartet.

  • Flexible format and syllabus options to suit your course Different instructors like to teach the course in different ways, and no book gives an instructor more options than The Enjoyment of Music, Essential Listening. A flexible, modular format makes it easy to use the book with different teaching styles—whether changing the order of chapters or using a thematic rather than historical approach.

  • Total Access to essential materials means incredible value Each new copy of the printed text—or each online activation—provides access to all the materials that students need to listen, learn, and succeed. Resources include the complete ebook, streaming access to all listening examples, assessment, a collection of tutorials, and more.
