Listening to Music reflects the successful and innovative approach used in Dr. Jay Zorn’s popular course in music appreciation.  While teaching his course, he realized students needed a more accessible and reader-friendly text that would cover the genres interesting to them while still teaching the classical repertoire. It takes a listening-based approach, focusing on individual works where the student is guided with appropriate musical and social background in order to understand the relationship to other music.
