In case you haven’t noticed, we have been doing a lot of freebies and promotions focused on music and fine arts. Often times when I am on the hunt for products for our own homeschool, this happens because I find so many great things that I know others will love too.
Music is one of those “subjects” that you can add to your homeschool at anytime, so if you already started your new school year, it’s not too late to add music appreciation into your homeschool schedule. This giveaway includes the popular books from author Opal Wheeler and a curriculum that you can use with them for a full year (or more) of music appreciation.Note: I was not financially compensated for this post/giveaway, however I did receive a preview copy. Any opinions are completely my own based on my experience. Read our full disclosure here.
The Music Appreciation Book 1 Collection includes:
- Student Activity Book
- Music Discs
- 7 Composer Books (paperback) of the Great Musician Series:
- Sebastian Bach, The Boy from Thuringia
- Mozart, The Wonder Boy
- Ludwig Beethoven and the Chiming Tower Bells
- Joseph Haydn, The Merry Little Peasant
- Franz Schubert and His Merry Friends
- Handel at the Court of Kings
- Paganini, Master of Strings
Music Appreciation: Book 1 for the Elementary Grades will introduce children to seven different composers, dating from 1685 to 1828 (Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Paganini and Schubert). Each composer’s childhood and adult life are vividly described in individual biographies. Every important incident is mentioned and every detail of the stories is true. Each book contains written music and delightful pictures throughout. It is more than the human side of these books that will make them live, for in the music the great masters breathe.
This book includes a variety of hands-on activities such as: geography lessons, history lessons, recipes, instrument studies, music vocabulary, hand writing, musical facts of the Classical period, timelines, character trait studies, and so much more. Geared for a variety of learners—auditory, kinesthetic, visual, and just plain “active”—the Student Activity Book is an excellent companion to your reading experience.
