Great Music for Children and Moms Too!
Mothers frequently ask me how to keep composer study a regular part of their routine. My response is to share our family’s experience of keeping to one 10-15 minute period of music appreciation each week. We would focus on one composer at a time and listen for a number of weeks.
Our family followed the Charlotte Mason principle of short, frequent lessons when it came to art and music appreciation. It became the foundation of my Harmony Fine Arts plans for composer study.
