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 placed my order for an accordion on a Sunday morning before President's Day, expecting the typical delays associated with weekend and holiday orders. Then, to my surprise, the accordion arrived on Tuesday right after President's Day. I was very pleased, not only for the quality of service, but also for the quality of the instrument. The sound is beautiful, and I will play it in church this coming Sabbath. Many thanks"

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"
