Composer studies can be for kids of all ages. 

However, based on the age and the ability of the kids, activities will have to be customized.

Can you think of other ways to engage your kids and have them learn about composers? 

One more thing that I forgot to mention above is that field trips are a fantastic way to engage kids as you all know. 

Trips to the museum to learn about different ages in music, trips to instrument stores to touch, feel and play instruments used by different composers, and taking in a live performances are all fun ways to expand their learning further.

This program reminded me (and allowed me to teach my son) how to read music. To me, that was the most important thing that we learned together. Of course, it was very rewarding for me to watch my son play the piano with both hands at the same time, while reading sheet music. His favorite parts of the course were actually playing the songs and doing the worksheets provided.
