Creative Insights into a Planet's Cultural Diversity
Léonie E. Naylor & Michael L. Naylor, Authors


All of the various Units and sections of "Our Musical World" are created to respect each and every individual’s creative visions, while giving them access to important topics, perceptual skills, and creative ideas from other parts of our world as might be found relevant or, in some cases, balancing to own lives and careers.

Each Unit includes: broad discussions of under-emphasized topics in Western education; stories and interviews from the musicians, educators, or youth of the culture-groups discussed, and wonderfully creative musical samples.

OMW also includes important insights and terminology as is relevant to each musical piece, but only as connects each work to the broader cultural topics or the over 700 pictures, expressions of art, architecture, or dance, and a wide assortment of other disciplines.

They cannot fail to grasp how every culture -- takes in ideas from other cultures to create something new. And if they put into practice the Naylors' step-by-step exegesis of the creative process, they cannot fail to come up with something new and important themselves."
