World Sound Matters (An Anthology of Music from Around the World). Composed by Jonathan Stock. Schott. Teacher's manual (the price including the photocopiable pupils' questions book, which is packaged together with the teacher's book). 168 pages. Schott Music #ED12460. Published by Schott Music (HL.49003213).

ISBN 0946535795. 8.5x12 inches.

World Sound Matters is an anthology of music from around the world, comprising of 58 traditional songs representing 35 different countries. It includes notated transcriptions of each song, explanatory texts covering the special context of each style and its musical content, 2 sets of progressive pupil listening-based questions for each musical style, and more. Each unit is free-standing and can be used effectively on its own. Alternatively, units can be combined to provide an introduction to the musical traditions of the world. The result is a publication which should be of practical use to a wide range of musicians, from secondary school teachers to their pupils, from adults interested in knowing more about world music to music students wishing to specialize in this field, and to composers.

  • August 28, 2008 Good resource for IB music students

    The anthology is very well put together and is very valuable for teaching world music. The only problem is that you have to order everything separately and it does not come with the CD.
