NYMM YOUTH PROGRAM
"Teaching Tin Pan Alley – Then & Now" with The Tin Pan Alley American Popular Music Project
Numerous songs including the iconic "Give my Regards to Broadway," "God Bless America" and "Alexander's Rag Time Band" were composed and published in Tin Pan Alley on West 28th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue during the boom of the sheet-music business at the turn of the 20th century. This talk is a multimedia presentation by educator Lesley Doyel for children in grades 2-5 that focuses on two enduring Tin Pan Alley songs children began learning more than a century ago, and that people still sing today: Take Me out to the Ball Game and The Sidewalks of New York.
Drawing from his research and extensive collection of sheet music and theater memorabilia, author and Harlem Historian John Reddick's talk weaves together the stories of Black and Jewish composers, publishers and performers of Tin Pan Alley that created the Great American Songbook” and American popular music.
Sporting a lively soundtrack of Tin Pan Alley tunes played by incomparable pianist Richard Dowling, and produced in the communication style of the silent movie era, "Tin Pan Alley Uptown and Down", is a seven and a half minute history of the street on which American popular music was born.
