The Role of Listening

by William C. Hartshorn - 1958

This chapter will discuss characteristics of music and their implications for the listener; the special importance of form; the unique relationship between tone, time, and form in music; enjoyment and understanding as interrelated responses in listening to music; musical meaning and what to listen for to find it; music involving associative ideas of varying degrees of specificity and responses to it; the relationship of listening to other activities in music education and to other subject fields; listening per se as a means of musical growth; some characteristics of good listening; and judgments of value, both as to types of listening experiences and music to be heard.
