The Music History Textbook Series
Most of the books below began as traditional print textbooks published by Prentice Hall. I wanted to create more engaging books for students, and so shifted to developing digital textbooks with Kendall Hunt/Great River Learning that provide complete interactive learning environments. The books now are sold in the context of college courses and come bundled with access to the Napster/Rhapsody digital music library. If you are a student, you should purchase your book directly from http://www.grtep.com or your campus bookstore. If you are a teacher interested in a review copy, please contact Jeff Grant, web project editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
