Popular Music by Colin Cripps

The Cambridge Assignments in Music series features a variety of books, audio cassettes and CDs including History of Music, Popular Music, Performing and Responding and Popular Music. This book provides an introduction to the main styles of popular music and their individual forms and techniques. Ranging from Gospel songs and Spirituals to Punk and Funk, Popular Music combines historical background with a practical musical approach. There is a list of suggested music to listen to for each 'period' covered, examples of which are recorded on the accompanying cassette. The book covers the basic work in popular music needed for examination courses and at the same time encourages creativity through inventive assignments.
