Harmony Fine Arts – Updated Links

The plans for HFA were written so families could use the very best resources for art and music, including online internet links. This creates the task of making sure those online links to my preferred resources are still working by actually checking the links periodically.

When we check those links, if we find a broken one, we attempt to restore it or replace it with a working link.

A fresh edition is created and posted to customers accounts. If you have an account on HFA and have made a purchase, you can access the updated version in your account.
Or, if you prefer, I create a PDF listing only the updates and then post that file under the “Updates” tab at the top of the website. Click Updates, scroll down to the grade desired, and then click and save the document.

FAQ – High School Music Plans

Harmony Fine Arts Free Printable High School Music Plans @harmonyfineartsWhy are the Harmony Fine Arts high school music plans free? Are they outdated?

Way back in 2008, I made my high school music appreciation plans available as a free download. They are still available in the “high school” section of the Harmony Fine Arts store.  Many families are downloading the plans and having a wonderful experience using them as a way to listen to great composers in an organized way. 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. But, they are not without their faults.  I have been working on updating the major flaws but I will not be totally updating them to reflect the updated edition of the Classical Music experience…see below.

Why are they free?

These simple plans are my gift to you as a thank you to moms and dads that are trying their best to offer more than the usual education to their high school age students. I hope that they help you in even the smallest way to plan a music appreciation course for your student.

Are they outdated?

The spine book has been updated: The Harmony Fine Arts High School Music Appreciation plans use the older edition of the Classical Music Experience book (ISBN 978-1570719509) but you could very easily adapt them to the newer edition (ISBN 978-1402211980). The plans are still usable because each assignment is by composer so by using the table of contents your student can adjust the page numbers with little trouble. I actually like the older edition better because it comes with CDs to listen to while the new edition gives you access to a website to listen to along with the book. It is a matter of personal preference.

I have gone through as of 8/1/15 and replaced any broken links that I could find. Plus, I added in Youtube links for most composers.
