Welcome to the digital textbook for Survey of Popular Music. This text consists of a broad overview, covering many genres of popular music from the 19th century to the present. This text was made possible by the Washington State OER Grant. I want to acknowledge the outstanding work of Ali Holmes whose assistance made this digital textbook possible. I also want to thank Justina Brown and everyone at the Teaching, Learning, and Technology Faculty Development Office at Western Washington University for their integral part in helping me develop this text.
