Packet 1: Milestones of Music History Chart with Stickers and A Timeline of Composers
From the moment a student places his or her autograph and birthdate on the Milestones of Music History chart beneath those of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin, a personal historical foundation is begun. This is the beginning of understanding the relatedness of the “big picture” of historical sequence and helps students organize an initial history framework for the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Twentieth Century periods.
Students color code each period and place stickers (dates, best-known composers, a contemporaneous American history event, and a musical term associated with each period) on the black and white charts to create color versions as pictured. This basic information is now an accessible and foundational reference for students as they encounter all new information related to music history.
Includes instructions and reduced-size sample charts.
