The Child’s Own Book of Great Musicians series by Thomas Tapper is a wonderful introduction to the great composers.
With the introduction, you’ll have 13 weeks of lessons (plus one more if you review) — enough to cover one semester with wiggle room for holidays and other activities.
You’ll find options for downloading Music Talks With Children also by Thomas Tapper on the introduction page. This book can be covered right along with the composers each week. The remainder of the free eBooks will be included with each composer.
We covered the composers in alphabetical order, however, we have included a timeline for those who prefer to cover the series chronologically.
Review resources are included below.
