Join us as we study the life of a famous modern composer, Igor Stravinsky. We’ll learn more about his life, his ballets, and more with FREE printables, resources, and ideas. Together, we can create a Stravinsky Composer Study for our families.
One of my favorite things about homeschooling is being able to incorporate the fine arts into our home. Studying about specific composers and listening to their music throughout the day has been such a fun and relaxing time in our homeschool. I thought it would be fun to do a series on some favorite composers!
The basic idea of composer study is this:
Pick a composer to study, read great books about him and listen to the music often! I also like to incorporate coloring sheets, worksheets and even notebooking while they are listening the the music. The Charlotte Mason way of composer study is usually to take an entire term to study one composer. That would be one composer every 9-12 weeks. I prefer to do one a month or one every 6 weeks, that’s just my preference.
This week is all about Stravinsky!
We were part of a Charlotte Mason co-op and one of the composers we studied was Stravinsky and we specifically studied the Firebird. That was a few years ago and my kids STILL remember the story, the ballet and the music!
Below is a list of printables, resources and ideas for you to use to create your own Stravinsky Composer Study!
Here is a great article called Parrallel Paths on a comparison of the stylistic approaches of Picasso and Stravinsky. This would be great for older students to read.
