Musician’s Museum Objective: develop a six-room museum based on an artist of the Bop style and create a brochure advertising the new museum.
Your small group has been hired to develop a six-room museum for an Bop artist. The board of directors of this museum have asked that you theme each room: one for each album the artist put out, one for each group they were a member of, one for each city they lived in, one for each guitar/trumpet/etc. they played in their career, one for each member of their band, etc. You decide the theme for each room and imagine what might be found in that room. Creativity and imagination are important, but if you need help, view the Buddy Holly Center website https://ci.lubbock.tx.us/departments/buddy-holly-center (Opens in a new tab. To close the tab with your keyboard press Ctrl+w, or Ctrl+F4). If you are a more visually stimulated person – visit a museum and draw from their displays. The Presidential Museum and the Ellen Noël Art Museum in Odessa are nice places to get ideas.

Fats Navarro & Tadd Dameron
Oscar Peterson trio
