I am so excited to share a fabulous resource with you today, Classical Composers Monthly- now called Enrichment Studies. This is a site that was created by a homeschool mom who wanted a place to find great classical music resources to use in her teaching. Classical music is something I have always loved , but struggled with teaching my kids. So, I was thrilled when I found this great website! It is hard work to compile things to teach my children. They have offered to do a giveaway for one of my readers! Yipee!
Here is how it works:
Enrichment Studies is a subscription program. There is a small one-time fee for a lifetime access to each collection. There are currently three different collections with about 12 composers in each one. When you subscribe, you get an email each month introducing a classical composer with a link to a members-only page giving you access to all of the resources. They have complied a huge amount of resources from around the web on each of the composers. There are videos, free music downloads, e-books, activities, assignment ideas, podcasts, sheet music, and more. The resources vary for each composer depending on what they are able to find online.
All of the resources are things that can be found online, with lots of time and effort, but here they have done all of the work for you! That, for me is worth the one-time fee. I don’t usually have time to spend searching things like this out. So, when I am short on time, classical music study gets pushed to the side. This way, we can easily go online and in one minute have all of these resources at our fingertips!
I am currently subscribed to the first collection and am so impressed, that I will likely purchase the other two as well. Right now, in December, they have their collections on sale from $14.95 down to $9.95. I think this price is well worth it for the content that you receive! Plus you have access to it for life. It’s a one-time payment.
They have a few freebies that you can check out to see what you think. On their home page, you can sign up to receive their monthly freebie. There is also a Christmas Bonus collection one right now that we have been enjoying immensely! My daughter loves dancing around to the Waltz of the Flowers from the Nutcracker! They have branched out from just music to include art and history as well!!
