Music Education Filter: "The History of Recorded Music" for Grades 3-8?

I'm brainstorming a volunteer presentation to give in schools on "The History of Recorded Audio". Probably 2 or 3 45-minute sessions. Has anyone written or presented something similar?

It would go something like this:
- Sheet music
- Earliest recordings (wax cylinder, Victrola, etc.)
- Multi-track recording
- Introduction of stereo
- Beat matching and the birth of hip-hop (the crowd-pleaser)
- Sample-based music
- mp3s and portable players
- Demo of sample-based and multi-track music creation on iPad or laptop
I want to create the structure of the presentation but vary the sophistication of it so I can give it to kids in 3rd grade all the way to 8th grade.
Ideas, thoughts, resources?
