About the Author

Katherine Charlton Calkins teaches in the music department at Mt. San Antonio College where she spent eight years on the all-college general education committee and then served as chair of the music department for the following ten years. During a yearlong sabbatical in 2007-2008 she studied women composers and compiled biographies, recordings, and listening guides, which she made available to her colleagues to help them add more women to their music appreciation and history classes. As a performer, she has a degree in classical guitar from California State University at Fullerton. She toured in Southern France and Tuscany, playing lute with an early music group led by her late, first husband Andrew Charlton and his friend Gloria Ramsey, both well known in the field of early music. Calkins also played percussion and toured in Japan with the CSUF Wind Ensemble. She got her M.A. in music history and has continued with further graduate study in that same field. As a teacher, she started the guitar program at Mt. San Antonio College, where she continues to teach music history, music appreciation, and history of rock music. Her first book, Rock Music Styles: A History, is now out in its sixth edition, published by McGraw-Hill Higher Education. Experience Music is her second book.

I have to use this book for my History of Rock Music class and while some of the information is pertinent and good. Other items are randomly placed. She excels at writing the listening guides. However my real issue with the book is that there aren't any source notes in the entire book. It's almost as if all the information appeared from nowhere and formed itself into this book. Now this is a college textbook and every other book I have used for school has numerous annotations and source notes. How did the author get away with not having any?

Needed this for a college class and liked the book's layout. It was easy to get through and offered a great overview that matched what we were discussing in class.

This is a great book for a history of rock music. The listening guides help merge the written materials with the actual music.

This book has a lot of information. It touches on a lot of history with a compact nature. The information is to the point and interesting. It does very well in pointing out the pertinent information needed for a test bank.
