The Anatomy of Music.
This manual was designed to accompany a computer software resource (Macintosh diskette and three CD-Rom discs) aimed at helping students with no previous musical knowledge, develop specific comprehension skills in classical music. The materials are based on the premise that conventional musical forms are abstract prototypes of whole classes of compositions, the prototypes are broken down into manageable portions which are used as a mental scaffolding for students to use in building understanding and appreciation of classical forms. The guide delineates the objectives of the overall program, provides an overview, and gives instructions, listening exercises, self-test,and historical information for each of the six program areas, which include: Minuet; Rondo; Theme and Variations; Sonata Form; Concerto; and Beethoven's Eroica Symphony. The guide concludes with suggestions for using this resource with groups. (MM)
