This collection is a teacher's gold mine! It's a teaching tool and a mini-musical! African American History: The Inventors promises to be the first in a series of musical collections celebrating African American historical figures. Chronicling the lives and achievements of four famous African American inventors, this collection contains songs that may be used individually or together as a mini-musical any time of year. There are learning activities and games for each inventor, and the rhyming narratives that precede each song make memorizing facts a breeze. The songs are short and to the point, with a variety of styles from Tick-Tock Boogie to Shoes Blues. Traffic Light is a '50s style ballad, and you better hold on to your hat for Ridin' On the Amtrak. Can you guess the inventions? Don't miss this opportunity for music education in your elementary music room or classroom. Choreography instruction by Greg Gilpin is included.

"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!"

"I must say your website is far better than any other I've encountered during my conquest for guitar picks sold on the web or at any retailer in my new town of residence. Your site was the first I've seen (of many) to have picks listed in an accessory department (the pictures were really swell) or any other I've checked, for that matter."

"Thanks so much for your thorough and prompt response! After searching high and low for these works, you cannot imagine how elated I am to finally find them! Thanks!"
