Music by Black Composers instrument books supplement current instrumental training methods by offering students collections of music exclusively by Black composers from around the world.
Starting with strings, each instrument will be the subject of multiple volumes, which are graded by difficulty from beginner to advanced concerto-level playing. So far, Violin Volume 1 is available, and we are working to complete the rest of the violin series as soon as possible! Cello, viola, and bass will follow. We also intend to publish music for wind and brass instruments, band, orchestra, and chamber ensembles.
In addition to making this repertoire available, our books also educate through articles and interviews. Each volume includes biographies for every composer, features on Black classical music making throughout history, and profiles of Black role models in classical music, past and present.
