Introduced in 1976, The Music Kit was the first to offer students an integrated learning environment for the fundamentals course.
By encouraging students to be active learners and providing for varied learning styles, The Music Kit has continued to foster the development and mastery of the basic skills needed for further study in music. Students perform frequent exercises, listen to music while examining music scores, tap or clap along to recorded rhythms, and complete computerized tutorials, drills, and quizzes that return personalized feedback and scores. Not merely a textbook, The Music Kit offers a complete system for introductory music training, which includes a Workbook, Rhythm Reader, Scorebook, and audio CD. Featuring a newly recorded, fully-tracked audio CD, and increased emphasis on aural skills, the Fourth Edition continues to raise the bar for music training excellence.

Beware this Music Kit will not run on Mac OS X!
I had bought this book used but had to go back and buy the whole Music Kit new. My tip to all book buyers, read VERY carefully when buying a used book.
