This is a fun resource for learning about classical composers and their eras.  

 

ONE reading of this short book and my kids know the composers, where they were from, famous works and their musical periods.

:hurray:

And as a side benefit, they learn how to make and use memory palaces to internalize information.

We love The Story of Classical Music (http://www.amazon.com/The-Story-of-Classical-Music/dp/B004QY1DSY/ref=sr_1_13?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1406304575&sr=1-13&keywords=the+story+of+classical+music) as a follow up because the memory palace gives the stories places to stick.  

My husband and I are both musicians so we have a lot of recordings on hand.  However, I'll often just turn to YouTube if I don't feel like digging through CDs.

I have them listen to works mentioned and follow little rabbit trails as they wish.

What instruments do you two play?

 

I just bought this, but no one in the house has listened to it yet. Dd is a music ed major, but has been too busy practicing, working, and studying to listen to it. One day. Both of my dc are in orchestras, so they get good exposure, but I still want them to listen to this.

 

Thanks again. :)

We're both pianists. He's a music prof and I run a private studio.

 

Just seeing this response. Wish you could help my dd w/ her piano skills. Second biggest guilt factor for me regarding dd. (First: not finding a better violin teacher earlier in her life. *Sigh*)
