In Performance

Wayne Bailey

  • Each unit is organized by where music is performed-the church, the concert hall, the recital hall, and the stage and screen
  • Over seventy-five listening guides walk students through important musical works regularly performed today in live settings
  • Dashboard for In Performance, available separately or packaged with the text, delivers streaming audio, videos, interactive listening guides, exercises, and more, in an intuitive, web-based learning environment.
  • Downloadable chapter lectures, recorded by the author and available in Dashboard, cover important points discussed in the text
  • Dynamic exercises, activities, and a discussion board in Dashboard provide opportunities for students to build and share playlists of works beyond the listening guides
  • Boxed in-text features cover the "what," "where," "who," and "how" of each chapter, improving students' understanding of how and where music has been performed over time
  • ** "Where it's Playing" features point out places where the music studied in the chapter can be heard or accessed today, including recommendations on how to access live music
  • ** "What to Listen For" callouts direct students' listening to the general listening goals of each part of the text and listening guide
  • ** "Performer Profile" boxes examine a composer or performer related to the music studied in the chapter
  • ** "Performance Practice" features focus on the music's purpose or how some aspect of the music is performed now or was performed in the past
