The musical heritage of America is rich and overflowing with supremely endowed musicians and composers who have composed some of the most enduring musical pieces. A potpourri of talent, American soil has seen meteoric rise in the field of music, thanks to the brilliant American composers who with their skill at musical play created some of the most mind-blowing musical compositions that world has ever listened to. Interestingly, American composers have touched the lives and moods of one and all with their compositions – witty lyrics and catchy melodies for that playful listening spree or soulful renditions backed by heart-melting words for those moments of love or even down under lyrics and soft music for the feeling of blue. And any discussion on America composers and compositions cannot be fulfilled without the mention of Stephen Foster, father of American music. He is regarded as the first professional American songwriter and is the proud composers of more than 200 songs, including two state songs. Other eminently talented and noted American composers include George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Richard Rogers, John Philip Sousa, Irving Berlin, Burt Bucharach, Amy Beach and so on. Check this section to know about the life and works of famous American composers.
