9780073401423: Music: The Art of Listening

Music: The Art of Listening weaves the story of great music into the fabric of cultural and social history to provide the reader with a context for developing appreciation. In a clear and accessible format, Jean Ferris and new coauthor Larry Worster introduce music from across several centuries, helping the listener develop techniques to fully appreciate music along the way. Using listening guides, insights into the composers, and illustrations from other arts, Music: The Art of Listening provides every student with a way to engage with great music and to carry that engagement into their wider listening world.

About the Author:

After receiving her MA in Music History and Literature at Arizona State University, Jean Ferris taught Music History and Appreciation at ASU. In addition to her work at the University, she has been involved with the music community by serving as a church choir director, singing with the Phoenix Symphony Chorale, playing the organ, and touring to Japan with her high school handbell choir--apparently the first handbell choir to perform in that country.

Ferris is the author of two books: Music: The Art of Listening and America's Musical Landscape.

Larry Worster (B.S., St. Lawrence University; B.A., University of Colorado at Boulder; M.M. University of Colorado at Boulder; Ph.D., University of Colorado at Boulder) is a Professor of Music at Metropolitan State College of Denver.

Dr. Worster has been active in the leadership of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the College Music Society, the Society for American Music, and the Board of Directors of the Boulder Bach Festival. He is the author of Cecil Effinger: A Colorado Composer published in 1997 by Scarecrow Press. He has published articles in the American Music Research Center Journal and the Sonneck Society Bulletin and presented papers at conferences of the American Musicological Society, Sonneck Society, and the College Music Society.
