More About This Textbook

Overview

When it comes to writing a text for non-music majors,Kamien knows the score. With the care you would expect from the concert pianist he is,Kamien introduces the musical elements and repertoire thoroughly and clearly,without assumptions of prior knowledge but also without condescension. As a teacher at Queens (NY) College,Kamien developed the concept of the Listening Outline,which he incorporated into the first edition of Music: An Appreciation and which he has refined and enhanced in every subsequent edition. This is a text with which students of all levels and backgrounds can feel comfortable.

    Great for class

    Book was great for class, but the cds are pointless. Just burn them off someone else.

    Music Appreciation

    This is a text book that I needed to purchase for an intro to music class. While the book seems to be good so far, follows what the prof is teaching, the 5 CDs are almost useless and an important part of the book and class. I follow the CDs on my computer so that I can use the play list to be at the rght seclection. The play list on every CD has the play list for CD 4. It makes it very difficult to be in the proper track. When paying more than 100 dollars for an iten, you want it to be accurate.
