Where is Music Monday? Composer Resources

Just a quick note to respond to a question I’ve been asked a few times over the past week.

Are you planning on reviving Music Monday posts this school year?

I do not have any plans to resume Music Monday this year. I love creating those posts for families to use and I’ve gathered quite a few posts for you on my Composers Page. The button is on the sidebar of my blog.

The list on the Composers Page should keep you busy for quite a while as you work through the archive of posts!

Here is the link: Composer Study.

Don’t forget that there are weekly music appreciation plans in every year of Harmony Fine Arts plans.

Music Monday is Retiring

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

After much thought and deliberation, I have decided to no longer offer Music Monday here on the Harmony Art Mom blog. I have enjoyed sharing music each week with you over the years but because of reduced time available for my online work, I will be eliminating it from my weekly postings.

I will be continuing to host the Sketch Tuesday assignments and slideshows though so please feel welcome to join that at any time!

If you are looking for a plan for listening to great music, you may wish to check out the Harmony Fine Arts plans available for grades 1-8 and even for high school!

You can look at a sample of a Harmony Fine Arts music appreciation plan by clicking this link and then scrolling down to page 9: Harmony Fine Arts Grade 1 Sample.
