Exploring Music

Kathleen Melago

Geared toward Music 101 classes, this e-book integrates other arts, key moments in the history of the wind band, and basic historical details with typical content one would expect in a Music 101 text. Depth of content is geared toward helpful information for an educated citizen, not preparation to be a contestant on Jeopardy. Special features include ties to students’ majors in most chapters and 17 chapters, including Activism in Music, Film Music, and Introduction to World Music.
