From classical to country, blues to rock, hip-hop to pop, crank up the volume and get ready to rock out with a comprehensive record of music through the ages.

The high notes and biggest moments in music history are covered in this fun compendium. You’ll learn about the world’s most famous musicians through the eras, from Bach to the Beatles to Beyonce—and beyond. Many major music genres are playfully explained, from tribal, classical, jazz, folk, rock…all the way to today’s modern forms, such as k-pop, hip-hop, and rap. Instruments and sounds are explored, along with places and events in history that inspired the evolution of music. Kids will also get a sense of music theory, instrumentation, and the artistry of distinctive musical styles. Song recommendations help readers open their ears to what they’ve learned. Add to that amazing images, a rockin’ glossary of musical terms, and a timeline that plots each genre on its path from ancient history to today, and this book is bound to top the charts!

HISTORY MADE FUN: Stunning historical photographs and a dynamic, colorful design draw reluctant readers in.

HIGHLY VISUAL FORMAT allows readers to see musicians and instruments in their historical context, adding to understanding and enjoyment of the text.

GLOBAL APPEAL AND INCLUSIVE FOCUS: The book goes beyond a western and homogenous approach, including coverage of female musicians and genres from around the world.

LISTENING GUIDE: Song suggestions give kids an interactive reading experience so they can listen while they learn.
