Presenting the enjoyment of music in a scholarly yet uncomplicated manner, Roger Kamien's book – Music: An Appreciation Brief Edition with 5-CD Set – successfully teaches students to diversify what they listen to and open their minds to different kinds of music genres, all of which have their own distinct characteristics. The author draws on his experience in connecting with his audience both in the classroom setting and in actual performances, successfully presenting key elements such as the history and elements of music in a meaningful and highly entertaining textbook. Roger Kamien selected the best musical samples and combined them with listening exercises, just like in the book's previous edition. Published by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Music: An Appreciation Brief Edition with 5-CD Set (ISBN 9780077433536) contains listening outlines that students can use as reference and to stimulate their appetite of music while mastering the chapters on rhythm, sound, melody, musical style, and musical texture. These listening exercises also give learners valuable insight on the outstanding qualities of music in different periods of history, such as the Renaissance, the Middle Ages, and the Baroque period. Both classical composers like Tchaikovsky, Berlioz, and Chopin and contemporary figures like Aaron Copland and Maurice Ravel were given their own chapters, making it very clear to students how music evolved throughout the centuries. Boasting a supplementary online feature and compelling text that encourages readers to link two what they learn in the classroom to their actual practice, it is no wonder Music: An Appreciation Brief Edition with 5-CD Set is one of the most highly recommended references to students enrolled in music classes.
