This book has inspired me to become appreciative of music, but not only has this book, but also my music appreciation teacher, Mr. Cina. He is a very dedicated, knowledgable teacher that brings learning to a whole other level because he seems to know everything about anything. I have learned alot from him and i would like to thank Mr. John Cina for being one of the best teachers Lane Tech has ever had!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

We are using this book at Lane Tech High School and it has dramatically helped me better understand composers, musical eras, and music in general and how it is related to the events that surrond it. Not only has it kept my interest, but i am also very involved in my music appreciation class.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
