I’m so excited about today’s music product to share with you. It’s from a company called Homeschool in the Woods. I have loved their products for many, many years! They have so many great history materials. Amy Pak is an incredible artist and does drawings of famous people, etc. Today I’m telling you all about the Composers Activity-Pak. And be sure to enter to win it for yourself!
Disclosure: I received the Composer Pak download so I could honestly review it here. This post also includes affiliate links.
The Composers Activity-Pak is available through digital download (which is what I got) or CD-Rom. Once you open it on your computer, you have a nice screen with a menu which makes it easy to navigate to what you want to find.
What is in the Composers Activity-Pak?
- Lapbooking Activities (PDFs to print, instructions, and color examples to follow)
- Music to listen to in MP3 form (29 pieces)
- Study 42 different composers from all musical eras
- Vocabulary Terms
- Orchestra seating–see how it grew through the eras
It’s best for grades 3-8.
My 8-year-old daughter loves doing lapbooks and notebooking.
Here is one of the pages she has completed so far after listening to the Mozart piece Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.
We are also looking forward to making the composer booklets to play games and learn with. They can also be used as flash cards. This next page shows you what one of the “teacher” pages looks like, with instructions on how to complete the activity and a photo of what it should look like.

my son will be sooo excited to have this pack!!!
I love it all. Notebooking is one of our favorites and the little booklets. So cool. Thanks for the opportunity.
I’m really excited about the musical selections, the composer cards, and the timeline. Also the evolution of the orchestra. In other words, pretty much everything about the Activity-Pak! 🙂

I’m looking forward to seeing how much my children will enjoy this. I think it will provide them a way to get a thorough education on the composers.
This looks like a great program. My kids were excited when I let them look at what was included.

This looks like a fantastic program. I’m keen to start teaching my children about the composers of our world in our homeschooled curriculum.
The whole pack is exciting.

Martha S says
I would like to find an engaging way for my children to learn about composers . We have used other products from Homeschool in the Woods, so they would probably really enjoy this.
Wendy Clark says
I would love to have this for my ten year old son!
What excites me is that my son loves music and he loves the Old Music and now I will be able to teach him about the authors of the music we both love. It is also something that I could never believe I would have.
Christie Gaskill says
Fun give away. I have been wanting to do more with music education in our homeschool. I see a lot of great tools on your Pinterest page too. I will have to check those out.
Love everything including the timeline.
My daughter has recently gotten into music appreciation – she loves the violin right now and this would be a perfect way to channel her inner music. Thanks for the opportunity!
Kimberly Schoonover says
This looks like so much fun! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
I could use this with our music in our homeschool with My Father’s World curriculum. 🙂
This is a great pack!
This looks great! I am really enjoying having more music in our school this year. You have been a big inspiration!
I’ve always wanted to try Homeschool in the Woods!
Judith Martinez says
I love classical music but I’ve done a terrible job of passing that love along to my kids. I think this pak would help me share my excitement with them.
A creative way to add music.
I am looking forward to exposing them to music they normally don’t hear.
We use lapbooks, timelines and art in many of our subjects in homeschooling. This is such a wonderful thing to be able to include composers to the music that we listen to daily.
