Music history is a required course for all music students. Unfortunately, the typical music history book is dry and academic, focusing on rote memorization of important composers and works. This leads many to think that the topic is boring, but that isn't necessarily so. As he did with The Complete Idiot's Guide rm to Music Theory , best-selling author Michael Miller makes music history interesting and fun, for both music students and older music lovers.

In The Complete Idiot's Guide to Music History , readers will find-

Important composers and musical styles from the dawn of time through the modern era. Both classical and popular music - including the 20th century's greatest popular songwriters. The evolution of music as a continual historical flow. Examples of the most important musical works throughout history.
