Norman Gamboa | Washburn University
I really love The Musical Experience! Several students thanked me for making the class fun and enjoyable, and a great part of that was because of this book. It actually makes the student appreciate music, and in a "Music Appreciation" class that is the main goal, right?
Bernardo Scarambone | Alcorn State University

The Musical Experience’s combination of approaching music appreciation by genre and the wealth of contemporary examples made the subject matter much easier to grasp. This is the way music appreciation was meant to be taught!
Kenny Goodson | Northeast Texas Community College
Both my students and I have been very pleased with The Musical Experience and the online support that supplements it. I am particularly fond of the grade book and calendar functions. It makes organization of the course details a breeze.
