Music Online Listening

Review by CCL-EAR Committee

Music Online Listening, a product offered by Alexander Street Press is an extensive collection of streaming audio covering jazz, global, contemporary, classical and American music. It is clear that this product could be of definite value in supporting all levels of music theory, performance and appreciations courses.

Reviewers conducted numerous searches across the databases and sometimes found uneven coverage. Reviewers were also frustrated by some of the search features and the load time for search terms and browse categories.

Authenticated users may listen to tracks while accessing the database or they can “borrow” any recording in the database package for 48 hours by sending a shortlink to their mobile device with a 3G connection or better.
