Studying Music History: Learning, Reasoning, and Writing about Music History and Literature
"With its emphasis on learning, reasoning, and writing about music history and literature, this valuable text is an ideal complement to traditional textbooks and classroom lectures. Among its noteworthy features, Studying Music History, Second Edition: offers a systematic approach to the date of music history and literature; identifies and interprets unidentified music examples and excerpts from historical documents; and demonstrates how to achieve properly written examples of musical knowledge and judgment through a variety of small-scale writing projects. Rather than requiring readers to extract important material embedded in a narrative historical account, author Poultney provides carefully organized structures and tables that not only offer basic data in a succinct format for study but also serve as models for further learning. Studying Music History, Second Edition, will assist readers to lay a foundation for a lifetime of music study." -- Back cover.

Review: Studying Music History: Learning, Reasoning, and Writing about Music History and LiteratureUser Review - Reena - Goodreads
This is one of the best books I've encountered for studying and grasping something as vast as the history of western music. I highly recommend it for anyone who needs to cram music history into their head in a short period of time.. it gives you a very good framework to start with. Read full review
