Description
 
America’s rich ethnic heritage has produced music of extraordinary diversity. American popular music, evolving from African & European traditions, has long been our greatest musical gift to the world. Musically speaking, American music divides into two eras: the time before 1900 when American music of consequence was mostly indistinguishable from European styles, & the 20th century, during which American composers began to declare their independence. Finding clues to the second era is the main purpose of this handbook. But the centuries before the 20th were by no means musically barren, & the potential for an identifiable American music existed even before 1800. Examples of musical scores are included with the text.
