Product Description:

There are 26 chapters and 7 review tests (each covering 2-4 chapters.) Each chapter begins with a little history about the composer, location and the world around them. Then you learn the musical concept and listen to tracks (either on the CD or from the teacher playing the piece shown in the book). You will learn about the piece you are studying and some history of the musical era. A "Facts to Remember" at the end of each lesson is helpful for studying, and then you listen to the pieces again. Each review test has a listening portion. A music teacher can play these, while others may use the audio CD. You really only need the beginning of the piece for the review tests. Tests (and answers) are in the back and are not reproducible. The answer key pages easily remove to keep as the instructor.

Publisher Description:

Western classicalmusicis as orderly and logical as mathematics, and yet capable of expressing and connecting with the whole range of human emotions. It consists most often of only twelve notes, a few simple rhythms, and a variety of aural textures that manifest in thousands of complex and distinctive styles and forms. It follows a system of rules set in place long ago, but these rules are flexible enough that newmusicis always being created, building on what previous generations composed, ever expanding.

This course aims to deepen the student'sappreciationofmusicby grounding the greatest pieces in the canon of Western classicalmusicin their historical context, and by introducing the foundational musical concepts of notation, rhythm, pitch, form, and melody to give a fuller understanding of the inner workings of the pieces and ofmusicin general. Students will listen to each piece ofmusicand then read each chapter and listen to the corresponding tracks on the Audio Companion CD, which will demonstrate the concepts discussed. The pieces are ordered mostly chronologically in order to illustrate the place each one holds in history and in the evolution ofmusic.

Category Description for Memoria Press Music Appreciation:

How can you teach music without any ability to read or play music, musical knowledge or knowledge of music theory? This Memoria Press book is designed to accomplish just that. This book can be followed chronologically by the novice or in any order by a music teacher.If you play music, you can use the included music samples to play for your students. If not, you can use the audio companion CD to play the lesson selections. Students will also learn foundational concepts such as notation, rhythm, pitch, form and melody.

There are 26 chapters and 7 review tests (each covering 2-4 chapters.) Each chapter begins with a little history about the composer, location and the world around them. Then you learn the musical concept and listen to tracks (either on the CD or from the teacher playing the piece shown in the book). You will learn about the piece you are studying and some history of the musical era. A "Facts to Remember" at the end of each lesson is helpful for studying, and then you listen to the pieces again. Each review test has a listening portion. A music teacher can play these, while others may use the audio CD. You really only need the beginning of the piece for the review tests. Tests (and answers) are in the back and are not reproducible. The answer key pages easily remove to keep as the instructor.

The audio CD companion includes 26 audio selections divided into smaller samples for precise coordination with the lessons. Composers include (in order): Handel, Vivaldi, JS Bach, WA Mozart, Beethoven, L Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Schubert, Brahms, Strauss, Wagner, Saint-Saens, Massenet, Rimsky-Korsakov, Mussorgsky, Prokofiev, Dukas, Ravel, Copland, Gershwin and Stafford Smith. ~ Sara

I've been wanting a chronological study of classical music, and this one looks like just what I've been trying to find. Not just exposure to the various instruments and styles, but one that takes you through in historical order.

i like the focus on specific pieces.

We enjoy music as a family, but have not really studied music. This will be a course for my middle school-er. We may spread it over 2 years, but I like the look of the course, the organization of the material, which should make it easier for us to actually do this regularly. "Extras" like art and music are the first to slide at our house, so I'm looking forward to having something laid out for us.

The description states that it can be used to teach when you yourself don't have a strong background in music.

Is the companion cd included with the book??
A shopper on Apr 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, it’s sold separately at this link. Also, I didn’t realize the companion CD would not have full music pieces on it. It does not have full pieces. It only has the demonstration clips of things in the lessons.

Excellent Course,even for high school
Two of my children are currently working through this for their high school fine arts credit. It is VERY interesting! The history included makes the composer and music more relatable, which is more engaging for the student. There are tests about every 4 chapters, which are very thorough, yet manageable. Highly recommend this course!
