    We used Opal Wheeler’s book Tchaikovsky and the Nutcracker Ballet. It does not mention nor elude to anything that has been mentioned here. We studied Tchaikovsky using this book and then pieces of music and I never heard about anything mentioned here until I read this thread. I can’t speak to the new Opal Wheeler book called The Story of Peter Tchaikovsky. It’s been a while so I can’t remember exactly how it went (maybe I should practice some narration! Wink) but I seem to remember him having a young scholar friend/helper/servant that lived with him during a time in his life. However, the book made it sound as though he was a student and a house sitter taking care of things at home while he traveled, never alluding to anything more. This was actually the second of Opal Wheeler’s books that we read. We also read the one on Mozart and my kids love her books. They are long and harder for littles to keep their attention on but we enjoyed them immensely.


    Gosh I’m so greatful to hear the heads up because I was going in very blindly.  We start school Monday and we’ll be studying Bach and John Audubon first this year.  I’m very excited, but glad to know that I might come upon some questionable information along the route of studying artists and composers.  Thanks for the recommended websites and links too – this forum is really helpful!
