This packet contains lesson plans and composer biographies that are designed to help you prepare your students for our Family Concert on October 20th and the Young People’s Concerts on October 22nd and 29th. For accompanying audio materials, please use the CD given to you from Advocates for Classical Music during their classroom visit or use the Spotify playlist below. Specific music tracks will be indicated in each lesson. We hope that the guide will be useful to both music and classroom teachers. Feel free to adapt or change the lessons to suit the needs of your students depending on their age and ability, no prior knowledge on the part of the student is needed for these lessons. An additional learning guide on “The Composer is Dead” can be found on the HarperCollins Publishers website.
