How do you print the flashcards? There was no place in which to do this.
After purchasing the course at https://learn.musicinourhomeschool.com/courses/100-delightful-classical-music-pieces-mini-course/, you look for the lesson entitled “Composer Flashcards.” You can download the PDF file there. The directions are included there as well, but I’ll copy them here: Print the composer flashcards double-sided and cut into fourths. You might also want to print on cardstock or use Avery #4750. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
