Listen. Learn. Appreciate. Share.

For more than 60 years, this text has led the way in preparing students for a lifetime of listening to great music and understanding its cultural and historical context. The Thirteenth Edition builds on this foundation with NEW coverage of performance and musical style. NEW tools help students share their deepening listening skills and appreciation in writing and conversation.


The best tools for developing listening skills

For 60 years, The Enjoyment of Music has set the standard for enhancing the listening experience for students--from the introduction of in-text Listening Guides to the development of innovative online pedagogy. This new edition raises the bar with leading-edge pedagogy that helps students listen, understand, and appreciate.

A NEW focus on sharing responses to music

NEW in-text and online features prepare students to write and talk with confidence about the music they encounter in the course and beyond.

A NEW focus on performance and interpretation

NEW “Performance Matters” feature for each period highlights the role of interpreters and the choices they make that matter to listeners. The feature considers both general questions of interpretations and the specific choices and challenges presented by each period’s music. And-–NEW to this edition-–eleven Listening Guides across the book include “Another Hearing”—a different performance of the same LG work to highlight differences in interpretation.

Digital teaching and learning resources that ensure student success

Superb audio, video, and assessment content pairs with innovative Norton technologies like InQuizitive to deliver the best music appreciation resources available. All in a format that is powerful, flexible, and easily integrated with campus learning systems. And thanks to Total Access, it all comes included with every new text purchase—an incredible value.
