Classical Kids Complete Teacher's Edition
Age(s): Grades K-8
Susan Hammond’s award-winning, best-selling Classical Kids teaching tools have revolutionized the way children, parents and educators approach classical music. Classical Kids presents each composer in context, as part of a story rich in historical detail and vivid music. While all the facts about the period are true, a fictional child leads young listeners into the composer's world.
The expansive Teacher’s Notes are designed to enhance the educational benefits of the stories, with suggestions on how to incorporate them into the curriculum.
The Classical Kids ‘experience’ has turned millions of young people into lifelong classical music lovers. They have received a bounty of praise from parents, teachers, music educators, and critics. Billboard Magazine called the teaching resources “One of the most completely wondrous examples of children’s entertainment ever,” while the Boston Herald called the Classical Kids series “…far and away the best tools for introducing children to classical music.”
The Classical Kids series in physical form (CD + Printed Teacher’s Notes) - used by tens of thousands of K-8 students across North America - has been redeveloped with illustrations and interactive tools creating a robust educational app designed specifically for the iPad and Smart Boards to take advantage of these new technologies now in use in the modern classroom.
The Classical Kids App combines musical studies with other subject areas and skills designed to move children from passive listeners to active participants in music, drama, social studies, history culture, and the arts, in addition to aiding the development of literacy, critical thinking and communication skills.
The Complete Teacher’s Edition includes 7 individual Classical Kids stories (45 minutes each in duration) and Teacher’s Notes (30+ pages each in length).
