The teachers manual gives a good overview and can be used in class to teach from. The quizzes are appropriate and emphasize material that is most significant to each chapter. If I were to write a manual I would want to include what she has.
The anthology, CD and print, are well done and affordable. I have found the recordings she uses to be excellent in quality and fitting to each of the periods. I have struggles with this in other publisher's works especially with regard to the price. My students have told me they listen to these CDs long after the class has ended.
I do wish there was more from the current period, especially with regard for Rock, Pop and Contemporary Christian Music Culture. That said I think Hanning has done an exceptional job in capturing a concise history of western music culture.
If you HAVE to buy this book for school. Do future students a favor and express your hatred for the book when you have teacher evaluations. Unfortunately, there are few if any good Music history text books. So, if you have a music degree, know much about Music History and can write a straight-forward, easy to read book, you could make a killing in writing a college Music History book.

This book was not much help to me when trying to learn about music of the classical and romantic era. The text is very vague and poorly writtenPublished on November 7, 2000
