Timberdoodle Review: A Young Scholar’s Guide to Composers

I am a singer.

So- I love music.
However, I have never truly had the opportunity 
to fully explore different 

classical composers before,

so the idea of teaching a subject like this
to my kiddos is kinda daunting.

Therefore, when Timberdoodle gave me the
opportunity to review…

by 
Melissa E. Craig and Maggie S. Hogan
from
Bright Ideas Press,

I was super-excited!

 
 *******************************************
This program includes:

*32 Weekly Lessons
(That’s a full year of music curriculum!)

*26 Bios of Famous Composers
(They are not boring-
promise!)


*6 Eras of Music Explained
(If it ain’t “baroque,” don’t fix it!)


*Easy-to-Use Comparative Timeline
(I like the little “tombstones” that they include

on the timeline to signify a composer’s death-
is that a little morbid?)


*Easy-to-Use Maps
(Haven’t you every wondered if Vivaldi 
and Bach could have been neighbors? :0)


*Composer Info Cards and Game 
(Watch out UNO!)

*Note-Taking Pages
(Yes, it is fill in the blanks…)


*Quizzes
(Well, we need to see if you’ve been
paying attention!)


*Answer Keys
(In case us parents weren’t paying as 
close of attention…*AHEM*)



*Listening Suggestions
(I mean, what is a composer study
without MUSIC?)


*Intricate Coloring Pages
(A little something to work on while
listening to the classics…)


*Resource Books

(For when you are inspired
to learn more about a
composer or his music.)

***********************************************

A typical section is set up into 3-5 sessions,
letting you focus on one composer 
for a week.

I love, love, LOVE that each composer lesson
is tied to a timeline that also focuses on the different
musical eras,
and that you are emcouraged to listen to the same
musical selection all week.


HOWEVER, my kiddos are still a tad young
to do this study independently,
so I will definately be using this curriculum

at a snail’s pace.


I would recommend this study for kiddos anywhere
from 5th-9th grade,
and it can of course be adapted and used
with age groups both above and below 
this recommendation.
