Source Book of African and Afro-American Materials for Music Educators.
Standifer, James A.; Reeder, Barbara
This Sourcebook can serve as a much needed resource in strengthening the study of African and Afro-American music, an area of specialization that has been neglected in most traditional study programs. The work is divided into two major parts, and 2 appendices. African Music, Part I, contains a bibliography of books about Africa, music, musical instruments, dance, art, and those for elementary grades, articles on music and dance, a list of additional materials including tapes, films and filmstrips, a discography of available and discontinued recordings, and a list of classroom learning activity experiences. Part II, Afro-American Music, provides a bibliography organized in much the same way as the first except that it also contains citations of Afro-American artists with the selected discography, and has a list of concert music by Black Americans as well as a list of composers, instrumentalists, and singers. This work contains both annotated and non-annotated entries. Appendices A & B include lists of Black Musicians and general reference books and materials. (OPH)
