Lessons in American Music
Robinson Lindsay, Debra Kay
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
"Lessons in American Music," by Debra Kay Robinson Lindsay, is a collection of lessons covering William Billings, Stephen Foster, Scott Joplin, and "The Star-Spangled Banner." This book is an all-in-one resource for teachers, offering lesson plans, activities, sheet music, and assessments. The set of lessons on William Billings will let your students sing an arrangement of "Chester," the unofficial anthem of the Revolutionary War. A number of Stephen Foster's songs are available, along with historical background and a biography for students to read. Students will learn to cakewalk and play an arrangement of the famous rag "The Entertainer" on the soprano recorder in the Scott Joplin lessons. The story of how our national anthem came to be written is presented in a way that will appeal to students in the lessons about "The Star-Spangled Banner." All of the music, puzzles, assessments, and worksheets in these ready-made lessons can be photocopied for your classes. Each lesson has all the materials you need to complete it and a list of which National Standards for Music Education it covers.
