Next, in the book they will learn about famous composer through the ages. Such composers they will learn about include Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, and the recent John Adams. You will notice that this isn't every possible composer, because my favorite, Handel, was not listed. Nevertheless, it is a good introductory list. Each composer receives two pages of facts, illustrations, and a brief description of their music. For example, Tchaikovsky's music is categorized as ballet music. The final section is dedicated to instruments. The author takes us through each family of instruments (strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and keyboard) and gives us about a paragraph of detail (either description of the instrument or who played the instrument really well or both) related to each individual instrument. This is a great section as it introduces your child to instruments they might never have heard of before, and might pique their interest in learning their first instrument or an additional instrument.
There are a lot of things to love about this book. The illustrations are cartoon in style, which will appeal to the younger reader.Read more ›
If you have a child ages 3-9 with an interest in classical music, this is a great introductory book. I also recommend a CD with Peter and the Wolf and Britten's Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. For older children there are other books that go into more detail about the composers and instruments.
