    What an interesting little book Musicians and inventors this one's for you The book focuses on 8 musical instrument makers Zildjian cymbals; Steinway pianos; Conn trumpets; Martin guitars; Ludwig drums; Hammond electric organs; Fender electric guitars; and Mood synthesizers We learn how they started playing and what led them to manufacture and in some cases invent their instruments Find out what makes an entrepreneur successfulStudents will like the oversize pages fabulous photographs and connections to various musicians of the period Each chapter is 15 20 pages long not too overwhelming for casual reading but enough information for school reports

    This nonfiction title can be easily manipulated for use in classrooms for short narratives on the creation of musical instruments but also a history lesson as many of these inventors and artists managed to be innovative even during times of war in their country and in the United States There are many sidebars and text boxes with historical facts short stories or biographies along with 5 7 page chapters of different instruments created mostly during the late 1800 and 1900s It's also full of immigrant stories and generational ownership making it part of America's past Each story is laced with economics industrialization and creativity along with famous musicians and brand names
