It's a great started for our kids to get to know them, and I love that it talks about how they came up and what it was like for them. We use it as a add on to our history as of right now, we may not next year.
I liked this book very much! It is an excellent "first approach to the composers" resource for children. Is not complicated to read and it has excellent summaries of each of the composers at the end. My son loves the fact that he can hears the music as well.
I love this product! My son 10 yr. old son loves music and has enjoyed learning about the composers along with some interesting facts about their lives. I plan to use Stories of the Great Composers for my younger son in the future.
I love this book. It offers plenty of information about famous composers and engages the student with questions and answers. The CD that comes with the book is excellent. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to expand their child's knowledge of music styles.
