9781619301993: Music: INVESTIGATE THE EVOLUTION OF AMERICAN SOUND (Inquire and Investigate)

The United States boasts a rich musical diversity. Colonial Americans integrated European traditions with new cultural influences to compose a unique musical identity. African traditions influenced hymns and folk songs that connected people to religion and to the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Patriotic tunes created unity in wartime. America’s jazz, blues, rock, and hip-hop continue to evolve from their African-American origins. Music: Investigate the Evolution of American Sound invites kids ages 12 and up to explore the roots of American music genres as they investigate the social, political, and religious influences that inspire musicians. Activities encourage readers to inquire into the art and science of music. Readers can engage in a hands-on exploration of the physics of sound vibrations, decibel levels, and acoustics, or use vocal styling to improvise and discover the rhythm of their bodies to create a beatbox. Music encourages readers to analyze lyrics, their meanings, and rhythms, and then use that analysis to write their own songs. This title meets common core state standards in language arts for reading informational text and literary nonfiction and is aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. Guided Reading Levels and Lexile measurements indicate grade level and text complexity.

Review:

School Library Journal
"This overview is a STEAM advocate's delight. ...an admirable synopsis of the multicultural history of American music."

Marla Conn, educational consultant
Music is highly motivating and well written. The activities are thought provoking, engaging and entertaining, allowing students to connect the text to self, the world, and other texts! I love this book! It hits EVERY standard for reading informational text, history, and science.”

Cecil Adderley, Ph.D., Chair, Music Education Department, Berklee College of Music
Provides the young reader with a glimpse into the evolution of American music with outlines of historical events that encourage further discovery. Diverse musical styles provide a broad scope of all things American.”

Dr. Deborah Check Reeves, Curator of Education and Woodwinds, Associate Professor of Music, National Music Museum, The University of South Dakota
Surveys the blending of cultures and styles that produces a unique American sound. Not only does it explore music as an art, it introduces music as a science. Students and teachers will especially like the Inquire and Investigate’ sections at the end of every chapter.”
