Overview

Students often struggle to engage with music that is often times foreign to them and subsequently communicate their experience in a written assignment. A CONCERTGOER'S GUIDE gives students a complete reference tool for successfully writing concert reviews and response papers.

Christine Linial, Department of Music - University of Texas - San Antonio
