Historical Background: Historical Background: Some of the best-loved American traditional songs are actually from England, Germany, and other countries. Many settlers brought their "homeland music" with them. Other songs and tunes were inspired and written in America.
From Beethoven, Hayden, and traditional English tunes to the spirituals influenced from Africa, Stephen Foster's songs and New Orleans jazz, much of the traditional American music that was popular in the 1800s has had continued success in songbook collections. This music is easily played on a piano, recorder, flute, or violin. Keep the music of the past alive by sharing this music with your children.
