    Default Music Appreciation

    I noticed the Music Appreciation book is book I. Does that mean you are planning to publish more? If so how many? I am looking ahead and trying to decide how to pace things so we continue to have music each year.

    Thanks,
    Julie

    Hi, Julie.

    Patrick Fata does plan to write more, but I'm not sure how far we will go. I will ask him and get back to you.

    What ages do you think that Music Appreciation is right for? I know it says 3rd grade up, but is it still appropriate for middle school and junior high students?

    Jeje,

    Music Appreciation is a good beginning course for older students who want some exposure to music history and theory. I went through it when we were getting ready to publish, and I found it quite challenging for me! I feel like this could be a course that your children could do as a group together if you are looking for a family activity.

    I think that we might do that. It looks like it is scheduled in SC 5/6, so I think we will continue with the K-2 music enrichment and finish it this year so we can do Music Appreciation next year, and then on to Exploring America's Musical Heritage, Early Sacred Music and Discovering Music. Thank you for the reply, and sorry it took me so long to get back to you.
