Our World, Our Music relates historical and discipline-specific concepts to students’ existing knowledge gained through cultural participation. It addresses past and present, Western and non-Western societies and cultures, examining music in particular, the arts in general, and the societies that support them within a given culture. Students develop analytical and critical thinking skills through structured listening and global approaches to our world and its people.

KEY CONCEPTS

  • Music is a human activity that is practiced throughout our world and has been a part of the human experience since long before we had the ability to write about it.
  • Music reflects the culture and society in which it exists. When a type of music ceases to resonate within a culture or society, something else takes its place.
  • When different societies and cultures come into contact with each other, both are changed by the interaction and their music reflects these changes.

ONLINE FEATURES

  • An interactive student website, featuring access to music listening examples, drills and learning games, listening identification activities, the Pronunciation Assistant, practice quizzes, and more.
  • Instructor resources including a classroom presentation package, listening guides, instructor’s test bank, a test creation program, a course content delivery calendar, the Pronunciation Assistant, and other supporting materials.
  • A turn-key online music appreciation course that is ready to upload and use in most course management systems.
