There is a wealth of info in this thread and I thank all who were involved. I am preparing our music plans for this year. My two dc 6 and 4 have thrived in taking music classes. Music (and all the arts) are VERY important to my dh and me but we simply are not able to continue the classes this year. So I am preparing plans for the year. Rather than reinventing the wheel I have been searching the archives. I have uncovered a wealth of info. I was thinking of a composer/composers per month chronoligically to include early, baroque, classical, romantic, impressionist, and modern music appreciation/history. Now I am questioning that. Does anyone recocomend a better approach for music education? (We are using CHC first grade and it would have been nice to do art appreciation/history along the same timeline but CHC doesnt lay it out that way)

I think that sounds like a very interesting and engaging approach - though it could be a lot of material for one year (especially for first grade). Maybe just focusing on one artist per month in each of the different styles but use that timeline approach. I don't have CHC's plans so don't know how they approach it, but could they just be reorder any art/music appreciation to align with the history and fill as needed if they don't have an artist/composer to fit that time.


And since this thread has been resurrected, it's a great opportunity to ask a question of any readers here in this forum. There was talk at our last moderator retreat about reviving the artist and composer studies. They were a great resource, but after the first year started to lose steam and interest seemed to wane. Is there interest in reviving this and are there some members interested in volunteering to plan a month or coordinate the efforts?

First, thank you for your reply! Yes, I agree completely and I was not clear about that.

I am new to CHC but it seems the artwork is choosen by the theme of the painting and I planned go further with the particular artist or style.

I guess I am interested

Lastly, I am now questioning the chronological approach because maybe some composers are more important at certain times in the liturgical year???
