Styles students will inevitably study Classical, and in doing so need to obtain Classical textbooks. But students of Classical often spend far too much money every semester purchasing Classical textbooks. Classical books can be very expensive when you buy new textbooks, while a rented textbook can be half the price or less. For example, a rental copy of either Norton Recorded Anthology of Western Music (Fifth Edition) (Vol. 1: Ancient to Baroque), The Norton Recordings: Four CDs to accompany The Norton Scores & The Enjoyment of Music, Tenth Shorter Edition, or Eastman Wind Ensemble at Fifty can be 75% less than what you might pay in a college bookstore.

Textbook rentals are easy (and even cheaper than buying used textbooks! And there are a number of ways to find the rentals themselves. If you wanted to rent Winter Music: Composing the North, the best way would be to find the ISBN number (in this case, ISBN9780393106084) from your Classical class guide and search for it on Whether you’re studying Chamber Music, Forms & Genres, or any other subject within Classical, renting textbooks is the way to go.
