Description:

Authors Terry E. Miller and Andrew Shahriari take students around the world to experience the diversity of musical expression. World Music: A Global Journey, now in its third edition, is known for its breadth in surveying the world’s major cultures in a systematic study of world music within a strong pedagogical framework. As one prepares for any travel, each chapter starts with background preparation, reviewing the historical, cultural, and musical overview of the region. Visits to multiple ‘sites’ within a region provide in-depth studies of varied musical traditions. Music analysis begins with an experiential "first impression" of the music, followed by an "aural analysis" of the sound and prominent musical elements. Finally, students are invited to consider the cultural connections that give the music its meaning and life.Features of the Third EditionOver 3 hours of diverse musical examples. with a third audio CD of new musical examplesListening Guides analyze the various pieces of music with some presented in an interactive format onlineBiographical highlights of performers and ethnomusicologists updated and new ones addedNumerous pedagogical aids, including "On Your Own Time" and "Explore More" sidebars, and Questions to Consider Popular music incorporated with the traditionalDYNAMIC COMPANION WEB SITE HOSTS NEW INTERACTIVE LISTENING GUIDES, PLUS MANY RESOURCES FOR STUDENT AND INSTRUCTOR.
