Krista Hart's Digital Book "Nine Noteworthy Black Composers"
The book introduces young music students to the works of composers such as Joseph Bologne and Florence Price
A new digital resource by author Krista Hart is now available from Alfred Music. Titled Nine Noteworthy Black Composers, the book is aimed at introducing younger readers to composers who have been too often left out of music history books.
The book covers composers Joseph Bologne, Scott Joplin, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Florence Price, Margaret Bonds, William Grant Still, Duke Ellington, Wynton Marsalis, and Rhiannon Giddens. Each composer is introduced with a short biography, paired with a Listening Lab, which identifies important works and key musical elements. Students may check what they learned on the Review page, through Reflection Questions and a culminating Writing Prompt.
