Add to Your Music Studies: Famous Composer Notebooking Pages
[Today’s article was written by Gena Mayo and is part of the 31 Days of Music in Our Homeschool Series.]
Have you ventured into the fun world of notebooking yet? We have done quite a few of our homeschool studies this way–science, history, character studies, etc. And here is another great way to use notebooking–when you’re studying composers! Today I’m happy to share with you the Famous Composer Notebooking Pages created by Debra Reed.
If you have never heard of notebooking, basically it mean that you are creating a notebook with different types of pages related to your subject. Think “scrapbooking” or “journaling.” There are so many different ways to do it that it can really fit almost any child’s learning style.
I love that notebooking with the Famous Composer Notebooking Pages can be adapted to be used by all grade levels. The youngest kids can simply color the composers and draw “what they hear” when listening to his music.
The older kids can write biographical summaries and musical critiques. These would also be awesome for high schoolers who are doing a music appreciation course for high school credit. You can even use it with my 21 Lessons in 20th Century American Music Appreciation curriculum!
The ebook collection contains 286 notebooking pages with 10 notebooking layouts in primary and regular-lined formats for 28 famous composers. Types of images used varies. Notebook cover, listening guide pages, and continuation pages included. [Be sure to enter to win a set of Famous Composer Notebooking Pages in the Music in Our Homeschool Website Launch Giveaway.]
