The Complete Idiot's Guide to Music History
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 isn't so. This guide makes music history interesting and fun, for both music students and older music lovers.
* Covers more than Western "classical" music-also includes non-Western music and uniquely American forms such as jazz
* More than just names and dates-puts musical developments in context with key historical events
