This is the third installment of the musical collections celebrating African American historical figures. Chronicling the lives and achievements of four famous African American musicians, this collection contains songs that may be used individually or performed together with the rhyming script, creating a mini-musical. Along with reproducible parts, there are learning activities and games for each musician, and with the rhyming narratives that precede each song, memorizing facts becomes a snap! The songs are short, and reflect the style of each musician: Scott Joplin · W.C. Handy · Duke Ellington · Ella Fitzgerald. Choreography by Greg Gilpin is also included. Soundclip is an excerpt of some of the songs in the collection.

"I ordered drums for my 13-year-old grandaughter for Christmas. They were ordered on December 21st. I thought there was no way she'd get them in time for Christmas and probably not before New Year's Day. To my surprise, she called us on December 23rd and said she'd already received them. Now that is amazing service. The drums are beautiful and she's estatic! We will surely be ordering more musical equipment in this coming year. Another thing. I'd gone to the local music store which carries lots of equipment and they were out of the drums I wanted to purchase. I got online and found activemusician.com and was able to find the drums I wanted and in a color I wanted. Hats off to your good service and good products."

"All I can say is WOW! This was the easiest transaction with the fastest shipping and high quality product and service on the net! I ordered on a Saturday, received products on Monday and they were exactly what I wanted! How often does that happen? Will definitely use this site again and recommend to fellow musicians! Thank you!!"
