Krista Hart's Digital Book "Nine Noteworthy Black Composers"

The book introduces young music students to the works of composers such as Joseph Bologne and Florence Price


A new digital resource by author Krista Hart is now available from Alfred Music. Titled Nine Noteworthy Black Composers, the book is aimed at introducing younger readers to composers who have been too often left out of music history books.

The book covers composers Joseph Bologne, Scott Joplin, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Florence Price, Margaret Bonds, William Grant Still, Duke Ellington, Wynton Marsalis, and Rhiannon Giddens. Each composer is introduced with a short biography, paired with a Listening Lab, which identifies important works and key musical elements. Students may check what they learned on the Review page, through Reflection Questions and a culminating Writing Prompt.

Krista Hart is a former music educator, choral specialist, and writer. A graduate of Wichita State University, she taught music in public middle schools in the Wichita area before working with a number of local choirs, curating music for concerts, choral reading sessions, and clinics.

With experience as both a choral singer and a choir director, Hart has also served on the boards of a number of local choral organizations. She is presently a member of the Marketing and Editorial teams at Alfred Music, and she has authored a number of books focusing on music pedagogy.

You can purchase the book, here.
