Fourteenth Edition

10 July 2022


Listen, Learn, Appreciate, Communicate.

For nearly 70 years, The Enjoyment of Music has led the way in preparing students for a lifetime of listening to great music and understanding its cultural and historical context. The Fourteenth Edition expands on this foundation with new chapters and features that add many voices to its already rich repertoire.

Digital Teaching and Learning Tools


InQuizitive is Norton’s award-winning, easy-to-use adaptive learning tool that personalises the learning experience for students, helping them to understand—and retain—key skills and learning objectives. Through a variety of question types, answer-specific feedback, and game-like elements such as the ability to wager points, students are motivated to keep working until they’ve fully comprehended the material. As a result, students arrive better prepared for class, giving you more time for discussion and activities. InQuizitive can also improve student test grades when assigned consistently for points, as a part of the overall course grade. Because InQuizitive motivates students to keep working on a chapter until they’ve grasped the content, assigning it consistently can help improve test grades. A robust activity report makes it easy to identify challenging concepts and allows for just-in-time intervention when students are struggling, and the convenience of LMS integration saves you time by allowing InQuizitive scores to report directly to your LMS gradebook.  For The Enjoyment of Music, Fourteenth Edition, Chapter Review and Listening Activities have been combined into one activity for each chapter. Listening questions are labelled and can easily be separated from chapter review questions in InQuizitive assignments. *LMS integration with InQuizitive is provided by a Norton Specialist for qualified adoptions.


Playlists include: High-quality streamed audio Access to interactive Listening Guides MET Opera video, orchestral video (Benjamin Britten’s Young Persons Guide to the Orchestra), and video demonstrations of the instruments of the orchestra
