5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Kids & Music Students! 11 Jun. 2012
By The Full Plate - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a parent and have been music teacher for over 20 years, in public and private schools and studios. Surprisingly, it's pretty difficult to find books on composers written for kids. Over the years, I developed my lesson plans by culling through my college music history books, encyclopedic compilations (e.g. Grove's Music Dictionary, Oxford Junior Music Companion), or biographies of composers written for adults. This series is absolutely FANTASTIC, and perfect for school-age children, whether you're a teacher or a parent. I bought all the books in the series, which include many wonderful composers, including contemporaries like Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein, who are frequently overlooked in school-age education in favor of the usual, Mozart and Beethoven. Illustrations on every page along with the text, makes this series engaging and appealing for adults reading to children or children who are reading. Two thumbs way up!
5.0 out of 5 stars great for kids, just right information and fun, not too stuffy 21 July 2016

bought for grand children ... they love it along with other books for kids about classical composers and CD's that I picked for them. I also bought them a Cd player of their own so they can listen to various passages of music on their own ... they love it all and ask each other when hearing a piece whether it is Mozart or Beethoven or ... - grkids range from 4 to 9
5.0 out of 5 stars Thought this series was great for my elementary students 23 Nov. 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Thought this series was great for my elementary students, grade 3 and above (to gr. 8?). It has a lot of serious info about the composer, but also little caricatures & comic book-style pics in most pages. which would appeal to young people.
Will definitely buy more of these books about different composers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Tchaikovsky book 27 May 2013
By Shelly K. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This whole series of books is fantastic for introducing great composers. I wish there were a lot more of them. They would be great in any home library and I get a lot of information from them to use in my fine arts program. Concise and complete.
