Book 1 for Elementary Grades

Giving young students an understanding and appreciation of classical music isn't impossible!

Music Appreciation for the Elementary Grades introduces students to seven different composers: Bach, Handle, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Paganini and Schubert. Designed to accompany the sold-separately "Great Musicians" biographies written by Opal Wheeler, children first read the assigned chapters and then complete the workbook exercises.

Covering four weeks per lesson, each begins with an outline of assignments. Comprehension questions, mapwork, writing exercises, and other worksheets are included throughout; other pages provide lessons for children to read on the composer's character qualities, interesting facts, and other biographical, historical, geographical, or musical information. Hands-on activities are also provided. As students learn about each composer in turn, they'll also learn to compare music from different periods, identify music examples, discuss the lives and times of different composers, research and identify different instruments, identify major periods or genres in music, and more.

In addition to the biographies, this workbook is also designed to be used alongside the sold-separately "Music Appreciation Lapbook on USB."

Grades K-6. 353 full-color, non-reproducible consumable pages, softcover.
