The cornerstone and first volume of the Global Music Series, Thinking Musically incorporates the sounds and traditions of world cultures to establish a conceptual framework for exploring musical diversity. Designed for Introduction to World Music/Ethnomusicology courses and readers with little or no background in music, the book explores the fundamental elements of music—including rhythm, pitch in melodic and harmonic relationships, and form—and examines how they vary globally from culture to culture.
