I finally finished putting my free downloads for my high school music appreciation program on Harmony Fine Arts. Now all four grades are available to download in PDF format. If you previously tried to download the files and they didn’t work, you can now find the files in the “high school” section of the Harmony Fine Arts Store.
Here’s my blurb on this music appreciation program.
These music appreciation plans are designed for high school students looking for an organized way to listen to classical music in the four-year cycle of history as outlined in The Well-Trained Mind classical education plan.
Each plan gives week by week suggestions for readings in Classical Music Experience, suggestions for listening to related music on CDs or to music online, and links to additional information about the composers and the time periods under study.
In addition to reading and listening, the student is directed to write a one to two page biography for each composer studied and a one to two paragraph opinion of the composer. The student is also asked to keep a list of the musical selections he has listened to during the study period in a notebook.
My art and music appreciation plan also was just reviewed in the current winter issue of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. Please check it out out in the magazine or it is available online below.
