Classical Composers Monthly---An Excellent Resource for Homeschoolers

One of our favorite things to do as a homeschooling family is to study history.  When I was in school, I thought history class was all about wars and politics---I wasn't at all interested.  In our homeschool, we find any excuse to make history a part of every subject!

I love to come up with fun studies for my kids on historical characters and events.  Remember my Titanic Tea Party?  That was a blast!  I've been trying to come up with a great one for art and music history, but have hit several road blocks.  Thankfully, I've found an excellent source for these very kind of studies.  Thank you, so much, to Classical Composers Monthly, for sending me a sample compilation to review.  All opinions are honest and are my own.  This article contains affiliate links.

Classical Composers Monthly is an amazing resource that sends out monthly themed collections based on a classical music composer.  Some of the things that might be included in each monthly compilation are:

  • lesson plans and activities
  • videos about the composer's music, the instruments they used, and the world they lived in
  • a clickable playlist, educational ebooks, links to other online resources

I have been trying for months to write up a study on Beethoven for my kids. When I clicked the link for Beethoven in my review collection, I was thrilled at everything included!  I had links to biographies, a timeline project, printable pages and games, seven videos, 30 compositions, a 3-hour movie documentary, and more!

In addition to collections based on classical composers, they've also just released a collection of Fine Arts Pages for studying notable artists.  I am just so thrilled to have all of this information together in one spot.  I know our family will really utilize both the composer collections and the fine arts collection this coming year!
