An Introduction to America's Music

Paperback + CD-ROM

Text with 3-CD Set

Richard Crawford (Author, University of Michigan)

Overview | For Students

An Introduction to America’s Music tells the fascinating story of music in the United States, from the sacred music of its earliest days to the jazz and rock that enliven the turn of the millennium.

Beginning with the music of Native Americans and continuing with traditions introduced by European colonizers and Africans brought here as slaves, the book reveals how this bountiful heritage was developed and enhanced in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to produce the music we hear today.
