Music Appreciation Monday – Wolfang Amadeus Mozart (for the month of January 2018)
As I explained last week, we are going to focus on one composer for a whole month to show the benefits of focusing on one composer at a time. We will have one musical selection for the first two weeks of the month, allowing enough time to fit it into your busy schedule or making it possible to listen more than once.
After you have listened to the selection on Youtube, have a short discussion with your children about the experience. If you would like to keep track of your listening to a particular composer, I invite you to read this entry and see how we did this in our family: Listening to Great Music – For Children and Moms Too.
Download a free Listening Log Sheet to use with your family. This log is not necessary but will help your older or more advanced student keep a record of composers they have listened to over a period of time. We kept adding to these pages from year to year, even up into high school. I even have my own logs!
I hope you enjoy the new format of Music Appreciation Monday because I really think it is going to create a richer listening experience for all who participate.
