This is a great way to familiarize your students with African American Jazz Musicians. This packet has ten composers for your students to learn about. Included are:
Mary Lou Williams
Terri Lyne Carrington
Information for the musician includes, birth, death, interesting fact about the composer and three works of the composer.
I always play a selection from the selected musician's repertoire while the students are coloring in small groups.
Also perfect for Music In Our Schools Month!
