MUSIC OF THE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD, THIRD EDITION, takes a survey approach to world music, covering 11 music cultures.

The text also explores geography and history, allowing students to connect the music to its social context. Listening skills are developed through spotlights on non-Western instruments, and 30 listening guides track the audio step by step, pointing listeners to important characteristics of the piece. Many full-color photos and graphics of instruments, musicians, and cultural events help students understand the context of music in countries with which they may be unfamiliar. The listening guides, an available 2-CD set (with full selections that help students hear significant differences among the music cultures), and Active Listening Tools (allowing students to view instruments and cultural settings while they listen to musical excerpts) further enhance listening and understanding.

Systematic, practical, and thorough, Basic Techniques of Conducting offers a clear instructional strategy and a basic methodology for teaching the physical gestures and concepts essential for the development of a convincing conducting technique. Taking a competency-based approach, this text provides a clear, step-by-step system for mastering the physical gestures required for good conducting. Paying special attention to the psychomotor skills needed for clear and expressive conducting, it establishes a solid foundation on which to build an advanced and personal conducting style. Based on ten years of teaching and class-testing, the text is carefully organized to establish essential conducting skills over a one-semester period. Each of the thirty lessons introduces basic conducting techniques in a developmental sequence, and includes a review of previous techniques, "guided practice" segments for group practice of new techniques, and "assignment" sections for independent study and practice. The text is fully illustrated with many conducting diagrams, photographs of hand and body movements, and numerous musical examples for directed conducting practice. Emphasizing complete musical examples rather than short excerpts, it features both choral and instrumental exercises for drill and practice. Engaging and accessible, Basic Techniques of Conducting offers all of the content necessary to build a solid foundation of conducting skills for all vocal and instrumental music education majors.
