Thinking Musically : Expressing Music, Experiencing Culture
"Thinking Musically", the first volume in a textbook series on global music, is designed as the core text for undergraduate, introductory courses on world music. Supported by case studies from a variety of cultures, the text defines musical terms and concepts and discusses how musical organization and structure differ across cultures. It also discusses how themes and issues in world music are influenced by elements of their cultural climate such as politics, economics, race and gender. A CD accompanies the text with selections from a wide variety of musical cultures and activities designed to build critical listening skills.
