Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

"These are skills that I find lacking in many of our incoming graduate students. While they tend to be adept at identifying styles and composers in listening exams, they tend to freeze up when a score is put in front of them. … The proposed anthology goes a long way toward helping to address this general shortcoming in the training of undergraduate music majors."

— Lorenzo Candelaria, University of Texas, Austin

"I would be highly likely to use the anthology should I adopt the textbook. … The choice of examples seems a good mix of pieces that are discussed in many textbooks."

— Charles S. Larkowski, Wright State University
