For PreK - Grade 3 

Volume II has more classical wonders like Beethoven and Tchaikovsky that will entice children to sing, dance, act and play to this mini musical creation! Charming storybook characters like Hatching Chicks, Mischievous Bananas and Russian inspectors captivate children's imagination through this unique union of story and song. Designed for any level of student to be taught by any teacher with an outcome like no other, Fun with Composers is a simple, fun approach to classical music!

The Teacher's Guide includes:

  • over 27 Orff-based lesson plans
  •  reproducible pages
  •  CD (with lyrics sung over the music and the instrumental accompaniment as well as an orchestral performance)
  • instructional DVD demonstrating the teaching process and final outcomes in a classroom setting
  • Music Maps

Movement choreography, Orff orchestrations, rhythmic play, listening questions, art activities and cross-curricular integration all creatively weave in concepts corresponding to the National Standards. Each musical selection has a theme or value as well as musical concepts that will be explored. The Music Maps provide child-centered visuals that present music in an organized format so children have a better understanding of its sequence.
