Historical Journey Through America’s Music
Program Length: Approximatly 45 Minutes
This program is also available on cassette and video.
General Info:
This program takes the students very quickly through the history of America by using songs popular at the various periods of history. It is a sampler type of program, with a great variety of styles and musical instruments. I have provided a copy of lyrics to some of the songs that lend themselves to sing-alongs.
