Revel Music

Preview Features

Empower students to actively participate in learning

Our music authors have reimagined their content for Revel, embedding interactives throughout the narrative that bring the discipline to life. Instead of simply reading about music, students learn to listen critically to the selections they’re learning about, and practice concepts as they work through each chapter. For example, Revel helps students visualize the elements they hear in Beethoven's Symphony no. 5, enabling them to recognize the impact of different aspects of the piece. By empowering students to actively participate in learning, Revel boosts engagement and improves results.
