FYI for audible.com members, there's a "2 titles for 1 credit" sale going on until July 4. The sale includes a large selection of Great Courses. One that caught my eye was How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, 3rd Edition by Robert Greenberg. I know next to nothing about music, so I'm looking forward to giving this audio book course a try.

That is one of the best general music courses to load onto your iPhone. It contains 2-3 semesters worth of information, but I’ve gone through it like 3x times!

Here is a Robert Greenberg appreciation thread I posted awhile back:

I love Robert’s courses. His High Baroque/Bach class is my all time favorite.

the Only course I didn’t care for was his one on Wagner.

I listened to the opera course - big mistake - you would have to pay me to go to an opera (exception: Mozart), and even then I would take earplugs...

Nothing to do with the teacher, just the subject.

I had an extra audible credit and have a road trip coming up so i bought it. Having grown up listening to Kiss on an 8 track tape deck I probably need a course like this more than most people.

Thanks!


First Lesson Oct. 17, 2017. Currently in Faber Piano Adventures Book 3a. Yamaha P-115. I play a little bass guitar also.

I've only watched bits of the course myself, as I know most of what he is lecturing on, but I think it is a great course and I've recommended it to others who are just getting into opera.

I was raised on Italian Opera grin, so I know them all as well.

I bought this DVD for my father, who was a professional singer a few years. He loved the course and watched it several times. I also enjoyed the course a lot.

My dad picked up another course from Professor Greenburg and was just as pleased alas I can't remember the course name.

Hi folks, Don't forget there's a PDF course guide book that's included with your purchase. It's 308 pages long and can be found next to the book title in your Library within your audible.com account.

I'm really looking forward to starting in on this audio course, just want to finish my current book first that I'm almost done with. In the meantime I've read about the author, the scope of the course, and the first lecture material. I've already learned a lot in just that little bit!
