America’s Musical Landscape is an entertaining survey of the growth and development of the arts in America that follows the chronological thread of American music as its guide. The author treats artists and their works as integrated events - as tiles in the mosaic of American culture. For readers unfamiliar with the technical elements of music, the text also offers an elegant and readable introduction to the fundamentals of music and is available with a three-CD set of recorded examples.

About the author (2002)

After receiving her MA in Music History and Literature at Arizona State University, Jean Ferris taught Music History and Appreciation at ASU. In addition to her work at the University, she has been involved with the music community by serving as a church choir director, singing with the Phoenix Symphony Chorale, playing the organ, and touring to Japan with her high school handbell choir--apparently the first handbell choir to perform in that country.

Ferris is the author of two books: "Music: The Art of Listening" and "America's Musical Landscape".
