An Integrated Approach to Theory, Analysis, and Listening

Steven G. Laitz and Michael R. Callahan

  • Offers a complete toolkit for teaching and learning music theory. Each new print and digital copy of the text comes with access to a media-rich enhanced ebook, streaming audio, and a new suite of auto-graded, online exercises that can be integrated into most learning management systems for assessment and practice. Connects theory to musicians' work and underscores its relevance to music students' lives and careers; rather than relying on rote memorization, it focuses on music in context, describing composers' works and discussing how theory concepts developed through music
  • Presents an outstanding quality, quantity, and diversity of exercises geared toward real music and real music situations
  • Includes almost 2,000 musical examples--290 of them new--and nearly 20 hours of streaming music

New to this Edition:

  • More opportunities for students to practice and hone music theory skills through targeted Skill Check exercises, access to a full suite of assignable online assessments, a new enhanced e-Book that includes embedded streaming audio for nearly every musical example, and a thoroughly revised Writing and Analysis workbook
  • A more diverse and current repertoire includes 290 new musical examples from compositions by women and by musicians of color, including many written in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
  • A streamlined and more student-friendly presentation. A thoroughly revised narrative offers greater clarity and conciseness without sacrificing depth, musicality, or richness, while new pedagogical elements in each chapter equip students to guide and monitor their own learning
  • A new Intermezzo on Musical Motives, formerly an appendix, falls squarely at the book's midpoint, highlighting shapes that tie together a piece of music across time
  • How Else Might It Have Gone and Reduction Strategy boxes place hands-on exploration of the book's examples within students' grasp
