At Classical Composers Monthly you get to choose from a variety of collections. There are three to choose from.
I've sampled Collection One. In that collection the following composers can be found:
Franz Peter Schubert
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Franz Joseph Haydn
Johann Sebastian Bach
Carl Maria von Weber
Ludwig van Beethoven
Bela Bartok, plus Bonus resource: Paul Hindemith
We took a look at Vivaldi and Beethoven these past two weeks, for no real reason to pick those two, just did. :) We'll be looking at more later. :) With Vivaldi we got to learn the history of the violin, and play a game, learn who Vivaldi was and why he was important and we got to listen to music. My lad was "oh.. it's okay mom". But playing it in the background worked well for him. :)
With Beethoven it was much the same, but different types of links. With Vivaldi we had a word search, with Beethoven a dot to dot, a quiz and a game of baseball. :) I really like how the activities aren't the same for each composer. It helps keep the studies interesting. The lad's response to Beethoven was more positive, but he liked it playing in the background more than just sitting and listening to it. (he's much like his mom that way). :)
You can try it out for yourself if you'd like. If you go to the home page of Classical Composers Monthly you will find box that you can put your email address into to get a free lesson sent to you. :)
