This 60-page supplement begins with the basic concepts necessary to understand music: sound, rhythm, and form. The development of music is then traced chronologically using numerous selections from the compact disks/cassette tapes that are available to instructors and students. An appendix on writing about music is included, as are "Key Terms and Names" and "Essay Questions" for each chapter.
