Summary: African American Music for Everyone allows for a superb comprehension of African American music without prior musical training, and yet stimulates the thoughts of trained musicians as well.

The text is divided into three parts:

  • (1) General Characteristics' entails an overview of vocal, instrumental, lyrical themes, and music settings indicative of African American music.
  • (2) Perf moreormers' is a discussion of singers, instrumentalists, and those that sing and play. This section is organized by group size.
  • (3) Styles' encompasses repertoire from African American spirituals through Hip-Hop.
Listening to selected songs representative of African American music is the underpinning of this book. Over 100 songs are analyzed for the reader and are conveniently organized in listening guides and on time lines. To ensure a full understanding of these songs, the specific teaching strategy places emphasis on music listening using ten analytical parameters: melody, harmony, rhythm, texture, timbre, form, dynamics and articulations, instrumentation, vocal/instrumental sounds, and performance practices.

African American Music for Everyone endeavors to reveal the importance of this music within a cultural context, its contribution within the scope of American music, its vitality within world cultures, and the significance of this music and its contributors to education in music.

A CD is enclosed with music sung and played by professional musicians containing audio examples that demonstrate not only usages within an African American performance context, but of general musical terminology. The CD can be used for other topics and courses as well. less
