I used this workbook and CD set to encourage my children to develop an interest in classical music. They learned about the lives and times of 17 renowned composers of the Baroque through Contemporary ages. The book is accompanied by work sheets that include crossword puzzles, word searches, and other fun activities to help students retain the information. The listening CD provides music samples from the different composers. And it worked! My kids developed a love for classical music and enjoyed learning about the composers who wrote such inspirational music. Kit includes a 72-page book, 17 reproducible activity sheets, and a CD with works by each composer. -- Cindy
