One of the most successful new texts in Music Appreciation in over a decade,Experience Music!provides an innovative approach to the fundamental challenge of the music appreciation course: the development of real listening skills in each student. With its unique three-part chapter structure in which one piece of music is experienced three times over the course of the chapter, the text offers a fresh, exciting, and more effective way to help students appreciate and understand great music of all kinds. This second edition has been carefully revised to build upon and refine the text's highly effective approach through extended pedagogy, more focused features, and new and updated Listening Guides. A program of well-crafted supplementary materials continues to serve the needs of students as well as instructors using the text. Each new text is packaged with a set of two audio CDs featuring key works addressed in the text and Online Learning Center; additional musical selections are also available for optional purchase. This edition moves the content of the companion CD-ROM to the Online Learning Center, providing open access for all students to the many activities and exercises. Within the text itself and in the online components,Experience Music!provides the tools that help students listen more actively and appreciatively.

Katherine Charlton Calkins teaches in the music department at Mt. San Antonio College where she spent eight years on the all-college general education committee and then served as chair of the music department for the following ten years. During a yearlong sabbatical in 2007-2008 she studied women composers and compiled biographies, recordings, and listening guides, which she made available to her colleagues to help them add more women to their music appreciation and history classes. As a performer, she has a degree in classical guitar from California State University at Fullerton. She toured in Southern France and Tuscany, playing lute with an early music group led by her late, first husband Andrew Charlton and his friend Gloria Ramsey, both well known in the field of early music. Calkins also played percussion and toured in Japan with the CSUF Wind Ensemble. She got her M.A. in music history and has continued with further graduate study in that same field. As a teacher, she started the guitar program at Mt. San Antonio College, where she continues to teach music history, music appreciation, and history of rock music. Her first book, Rock Music Styles: A History, is now out in its sixth edition, published by McGraw-Hill Higher Education. Experience Music is her second book.
