Product Description

“Let the young people hear good music as often as possible, … let them study occasionally the works of a single great master until they have received some of his teaching, and know his style.” —Charlotte Mason

This Music Study with the Masters portfolio includes everything you need to teach music appreciation successfully.

  • Feel confident—whether you are old friends with the composer or are just being introduced—with step-by-step instructions for doing music study. It takes only a few minutes each week, yet it yields amazingly rich results!
  • Listen to a wide range of Beethoven’s works and get to know his style with two full-length albums of his music. We have included mostly full-length works and added a few shorter, well-known pieces to round out the collection.
  • Learn the fascinating stories behind the pieces (and a bit about classical music along the way) with the Listen and Learn ideas for eight of Beethoven’s works.
  • Get to know Beethoven as a real person through a personal portrait and see where he fits in history with the included timeline.
  • Experience Beethoven’s history come alive with two living biographies: a succinct and vivid A Day in the Life narrative designed for all ages, and a longer entire-life biography well-told for older students (or anyone who wants to learn more).
  • Fuel additional discovery and heart connections with Beethoven and his music with recommended resources for further study.

Charlotte held that “Music is a necessary part of education.” Your students will enjoy this part of a rich education when they do Music Study with the Masters!

    I really have to say that I am impressed with this study. The material is well thought out, the music lovely and the story about “A Day in the Life of Beethoven” is highly engaging. I am learning right along with my children and loving every minute. I truly wish I had learned about the great composers like this when I was in school. There are ample links to extra resources in the back of the book and I look forward to engaging in them. Thank you Simply Charlotte Mason – we will be back for more!

    5 stars! My 8-year-old and 10-year-old loved me to read “A Day In the Life” and listen to the CDs in the mornings! Totally worth the money, and this will be one I will keep in our homeschool library for us to continue to listen to over and over again 🙂 Highly recommend!

    I love all of the music studies I’ve tried. Beethoven was the first one I bought. 100% recommend. In fact… I do recommend it to all my homeschool friends.
