Stories of Great Composers is perfect for students in 4th-8th grade, but it can easily be adapted for younger or older students.

With Stories of Great Composers, students will learn about the lives of:

  • Johann Sebastian Bach
  • Ludwig van Beethoven
  • Frederic François Chopin
  • Edvard Grieg
  • George Frideric Handel
  • Franz Joseph Haydn
  • Franz Liszt
  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  • Franz Peter Schubert
  • Robert Schumann
  • Giuseppe Verdi
  • Richard Wagner

Each lesson begins with a story about the composer’s life, including a focus on his childhood. A page is included for the student to draw what they think about as they hear or read the story.

Comprehension questions and a page for written narration follow. Each lesson concludes with dates and map work. The timeline is built on throughout all twelve units so they can see how many of these famous men’s lives overlapped. The map work helps them see where the events of the story took place.

A list of free bonus resources is included as well as two sample schedules you can use to break down the study. An answer key is also included.
