Guide students to build listening skills
Active Listening Guides
Active Listening Guides bring music to life, helping students understand how to listen critically. Pearson’s interactive guides use text descriptions and visual indicators to show how musical elements — such as melody, timbre, form, and texture — change throughout a musical piece. This allows students to visualize the elements they are hearing, and understand their impact. Listening Guides are found in every chapter, allowing students to build on their knowledge and master listening to music critically.
