For courses in Music Appreciation Listen to the music. Hear the elements. Connect your playlist. Listen to This is designed to connect students' interest in the music on their own playlists with great music from throughout history and all over the world. It is based on the idea that all music is built on a combination of a few basic elements - melody, dynamics, rhythm, harmony, texture, timbre, form, and word-music relationships - and if students listen for those elements they can better understand how a piece of music works, no matter how unfamiliar it may seem at first. This elements-centered approach provides a strong foundation for learning about, and enjoying, many new musical styles. The Fourth Edition includes expanded coverage of timbre as well as new chapters on additional musical works. Listen to This, Fourth Edition is also available via Revel(TM), an interactive digital learning environment that replaces the print textbook, enabling students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.

Advancements in technology, such as tablets and smartphones, have changed the way people work. As a result, the chasm in areas such as information access, opinions, and even ethics has widened between people who are keeping up with the continuing changes and those who have been left behind. In An Age Without Samples, Ikutaro Kakehashi argues that what we need to do now is resurrect the venture spirit we saw from the late 60s through the 80s. With the explosive change brought about by IT, social networking, and other developments, there is a very rare opportunity today for venture businesses. Based on a solid footing in his area of specialty as a pioneer in music and technology, Kakehashi uses the digital age as the backdrop of the times we live in. In this book, he offers tips on how one might navigate this age without samples, drawing from his own personal experience, successes, and most important, ground breaking product development.

With their unforgettable melodies, timeless messages, and stylistic indebtedness to both jazz and Broadway, American popular standards have proven to be among the most widely performed and enjoyed songs of the past century. Shaped in many ways by the technological and cultural developments of the early twentieth century, they have also managed to transcend these origins and become an enduring part of the American musical landscape. Ann van der Merwe explores how and why American songbook standards developed in the early twentieth century and how these standards have shaped American-and even global-musical culture ever since. The American Songbook explores key aspects of individual songs, including the musical and lyrical reasons for their broad appeal and applicability over the years. The American songbook continues to permeate the fabric of our daily lives. It is a repertoire that spans generations, from Fred Astaire to Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. As a result, music lovers both young and old will enjoy discovering how these beloved songs emerged and why they remain relevant a century later.

Although medieval English music has been relatively neglected in comparison with repertoire from France and Italy, there are few classical musicians today who have not listened to the thirteenth-century song 'Sumer is icumen in', or read of the achievements and fame of fifteenth-century composer John Dunstaple. Similarly, the identification of a distinctively English musical style (sometimes understood as the contenance angloise) has been made on numerous occasions by writers exploring the extent to which English ideas influenced polyphonic composition abroad. Angel song: Medieval English music in history examines the ways in which the standard narratives of English musical history have been crafted, from the Middle Ages to the present. Colton challenges the way in which the concept of a canon of English music has been built around a handful of pieces, composers and practices, each of which offers opportunities for a reappraisal of English musical and devotional cultures between 1250 and 1460.
