Welcome to the World's Greatest Composers Study Volume 1!

promogreatcomposers

In this series of studies, we will be taking a look at 8 of the world’s greatest composers.

The goal behind the World’s Greatest Composers curriculum is to immerse students in the work of each composer so that they are well familiar with their style, methods and music. Much of your time studying will be through open discussion with students and listening to compositions. Upon completion of this curriculum, your student should be able to easily recognize the pieces from each composer studied. They will also have learned several different styles of music, vocabulary, as well as have gained an appreciation for music in general.

Like the World’s Greatest Artists study, the composers study uses the World’s Greatest Composer Series by Mike Venezia.

What is included in the study?

For each day of listening there is an activity for students to complete while listening. This will help them focus on the music, and think critically about what they are hearing. By the end of the study, your student will have a completed composers notebook along with an orchestra and music lap book.

  • Introduction to Orchestra
  • Johann Sebastian Bach
  • George Handel
  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  • Ludwig Van Beethoven
  • Frederic Chopin
  • Peter Tchaikovsky
  • Igor Stravinsky
  • George Gershwin
  • Composer Reports
  • Instrument Word Scrambles
  • Music Bingo Cards

Each composer unit has 10 lessons, I suggest scheduling 2-3 days per week for the composers study. The curriculum will take 1 full year to complete at this pace. However, the lessons can be easily adapted to fit your schedule as well.

As you progress through each composer your student will be creating a fun lap book to help them remember what they’ve learned.

As you progress through the composers, you will create mini-books for each one along with a puzzle, and pocket to store your pieces in.
