We’re excited to announce two brand new music courses OnMusic Explorations and OnMusic of the USA which are now available for adoption. These brand new titles are the first step in your students’ journey to explore and hopefully start to untangle the mysterious power that music has on billions of people world-wide every day.
Beginning with a broad introduction to basic music concepts and organizing elements, OnMusic Explorations helps your students dig deeper into the musical components so they can become more perceptive listeners. With this foundation in place, the text shifts focus onto exploring the panorama of music genres from America, Europe, Africa, Japan, and Latin America.
OnMusic of the USA follows a similar foundational path, but focuses on exploring uniquely American music genres such as Jazz, the Blues, ragtime, swing and big bands, country, Native American, rockabilly, bluegrass, soul, rock, and hip-hop. This panorama of the American music experience also covers deeply influential artists and the cultural impact of their music on American society.
