Rather than an encyclopedic approach to the history, History of Rock and Roll in the United States includes the essentials to the history of rock and roll. The authors review the core repertoire in subsequent chapters from the additional angles of instruments, performers, spaces, form, and technology.  It develops a framework that readers can use to understand other music they may come across in the future.

History of Rock and Roll in the United States:

  • includes links to songs – listen to them before, while, and after reading about them.  Students are encouraged to let music sink in. Take time to enjoy it, but also become an active listener.
  • integrates questions at the beginning and end of each chapter to help alert the reader’s unconscious mind to what to watch for and to assess comprehension of concepts taught.
  • helps students to increase their awareness and understanding of American popular music and to make listening to music more interesting and enjoyable.
  • includes a companion website with YouTube and Spotify playlists and other enrichment material.
