The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Music History
From pre-historic Africa to classical Europe to American popular music.
A beautifully composed journey through music history!
Music history is a required course for all music students. Unfortunately, the typical music history book is dry and academic, focusing on rote memorization of important composers and works. This leads many to think that the topic is boring, but bestselling author Michael Miller proves that isnt so. This guide makes music history interesting and fun, for both music students and older music lovers.
Covers more than Western classical musicalso includes non-Western music and uniquely American forms such as jazz
More than just names and datesputs musical developments in context with key historical events
