Cultural Diversity: Resources for Music Educators in Selected Works of Three Contemporary African-American Classical Composers
Choi, Eunjung; Keith, Laura J.
Music Educators Journal, v103 n2 p35-40 Dec 2016
Contemporary African-American classical composers Cedric Adderley, John Lane, and Trevor Weston intertwine strands of culture and individual experience to produce musical works whose distinct designs offer cultural resources that music educators can use to integrate diversity into instructional settings. Of special interest is their ability to combine traditional European styles and other musical styles, including jazz, gospel, and blues, in their music. The authors include recommendations for incorporating elements of these contemporary African-American--composed works into the curriculum.
