Format: Spiral-bound
This book is an excellent book with a problem! I found this book to lack an accompanying Music C.D. which should consist of all Music/Song selections found in this book. As a Music Educator, I feel that Music teachers have a better handle on classroom control when one can immediately select the music/song to be heard in class from an accompanying Musical C.D. Playing the music directly from this book should be the choice of the Teacher (not all Music Teachers are trained pianists!)enabling extensive student-centered lessons and easier teaching methods.

We used this book as a spine for our group music history unit studies. It was one of our favorites! The catchy musical excerpts made each lesson memorable. The kids loved singing them. We supplemented with short bios of the composers and pages to color while we listened. Maps helped us see where the composers traveled. We added videos when available and attended live events. It was a very rich study! Young children can really acquire a love for classical music.

We have such wonderful memories of this study that I'm having a hard time selling our copy.

I used this to teach a class of 5-7 yr. olds in our homeschool co-op. Although at times I had to add a little more review and material of my own, I was able to use this to teach entire 45 min. sessions. The kids love it and it is easy to prepare. I'm sure I will be able to use it much more in the future because it covers such a wide age range. Definitely money well-spent!

Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I am en elementary music teacher, and I was excited about this purchase. After reading this book, I was disappointed because I didn't find a lot of lessons/resources that I felt I could have used in my room--at least not for the price. This book just sits on my shelf. On the other hand, the lessons are clear and it gives very detailed action steps. It could possibly be something good to leave for a sub. I did not get much use out of the product. BUY USED!
