Music by Black Composers is a signature program of the Rachel Barton Pine Foundation.
Young classical musicians seldom, if ever, have the opportunity to study and perform music written by Black composers. Music by Black Composers (MBC) will supplement the current instrumental training methods by publishing books of music exclusively by Black composers from around the world. Each orchestral instrument, starting with the strings, will be the subject of multiple volumes, graded by difficulty from beginner to advanced concerto-level playing. Each volume will also include biographies for every composer, feature articles on Black music making throughout history, and profiles of Black role models in music, past and present.
