Product Description:

If you are looking for something that is not quite a music course, but more than a music supplement, this could be just that perfect balance for your family. Introduce students to 8 eras of musical history with downloadable music tracks from these periods: Greco-Roman, Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Turn of the 20th Century and 1945-Present. Students learn what to listen for, musical vocabulary words, and a good amount of history, including a timeline. Each unit includes an overview, 2 pages of important musical developments, 2 pages of art showing life at that time, and a 1 page summary with listening examples & a written review. The answer key to the review is in the back. Not reproducible. Not consumable. I would have students write on their own papers as the written work is minimal. Music is now accessible via downloadable recordings from the publisher's website. Specific tracks are recommended in the lessons. Paperback book is large format (9" x 12") and colorfully illustrated. 56 pp ~ Sara

Publisher Description:

Great Music & Musicians provides a foundation for understanding the major cultural periods---from the Greco-Roman Era to the present. It guides students through musical styles and the development of music through the ages. The book and CD includes art and listening examples that offer an opportunity for discussions. Although not correlated page-by-page, book 1 is appropriate for piano students in Premier Piano Course, levels 1A and 1B. It also may be used by students in other piano methods or as a focal point for group lessons. Each unit includes an overview and historical background, a closer look at important musical developments, art to provide further insight into life during the time, a short summary, listening suggestions, and a written review.

I plan to introduce music history and great composers to my piano students using these books.

This is a solid program of music appreciation. It gives a nice timeline and includes fun facts from each period.

We've studied music. We've studied history. We have not faithfully kept up timelines or a book of centuries. This seems to tie together history, art, and music. I'm hopeful!
