This is the last in my “extras” series. I’m going to be honest and tell you that of all the subjects, I have the hardest time with composer study. Our composer for this term is Chopin; however, we have yet to listen to anything by him!
I have this scheduled for Thursdays. Ideally, I would like to introduce the composer, read a short bio on him, put him in our Book of Centuries and listen to pieces by him. Our day tends to get busy and I don’t bother to put on the music, though. So, if you are interested in trying this out, it should only take a few minutes a week. You could play the music while the kids are working or even in the car if you have a cd to listen to. The website www.classical.com has several pieces you could listen to over the computer also. I used it last year while studying Bach.
