The essential skills for listening to, understanding, and enjoying music
Used by more than 3.5 million students, The Enjoyment of Music has been the most trusted introduction to music for over five decades. The Tenth Edition reaffirms this status in a thoughtful revision offering a more diverse repertory and a stronger emphasis on the cultural significance of musical styles and periods. Responding directly to the needs of today’s students, Professor Forney has completely rewritten the chapters on musical elements for accessibility and integrated the textbook material with powerful new multimedia learning tools. These resources—the Student Resource DVD, StudySpace, and the Online Listening Lab—reinforce important concepts from the text through interactive, hands-on learning.
