Music Appreciation Monday – Debussy

Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts @harmonyfinearts.org Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.

Music Appreciation Monday – Claude Debussy

Claude Debussy – Arabesque

This is such a beautiful piece of music. I could listen to it over and over. I hope you enjoy it as much as our family has over the years. Make sure to ask your children how the music makes them feel….perhaps contrast this selection to last week’s selection.

This composer is featured in Harmony Fine Arts grade 4 plans if you would like to listen to more Debussy.

World Geography Plans – From My Archives

Harmony Art Mom World Geography Plans

I have received quite a bit of email about my free downloadable plans for high school geography. Dropbox has stopped supporting the file so I am now hosting it here on my Harmony Art Mom blog.

These plans were created for my family as explained in the entries below.

Entry with the download link: World Geography Plans Download.

Pretty thorough description found here: World Geography for High Schoolers.

Reading back through these two entries, I realize now how valuable this course was to my children. They learned over the months how interconnected our modern world is and how in their youth they could be wide open to experiencing different cultures through travel and volunteer work.

Since high school graduation my children have traveled to Ireland, Bolivia, Peru, Nicaragua, and Guyana. My youngest son is currently living in Guyana.

I know that spending a year in high school concentrating on world geography and cultures had a great impact on their choices in their twenties.

I invite you to download the plans and then tweak them to fit your family’s learning style and interests.

Please note that I have not updated all the links in the plans so you may need to do a Google search for the item or find a substitute. They are still very usable and will help you get started with your own high school level geography course.

Enjoy!

 

 

Music Appreciation Monday – Handel

Music Appreciation Monday – George Frideric Handel

This is such “royal” music! It is fun to listen to and imagine hearing it as there are fireworks shooting off in the night sky. Such a visual! Use markers and paper as you listen to make your own fireworks artwork as you listen.

Handel- Music for the Royal Fireworks, Overture
