Music

When we talk about musicians and Harlem, the Harlem Renaissance comes to mind because of the many fascinating musicians from that period like Fats Waller, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Louis Armstrong to name just a few. However, we must not forget to also celebrate the other great musicians like Tito Puente, Bud Powell, Hazel Scott, Lorenz Hart, and The Spanish Harlem Orchestra. Our Famous Harlem Musicians Lesson Planswill introduce the students to these important musicians. The lessons are available for elementary school, middle school and high school students. We also have a supplemental lesson available to help reinforce what the student has learned. The lesson consists of ten vocabulary words, ten fun facts on the topic and a word search puzzle.
