Do you think that your pre-schoolers are too young to embark on composer studies’ work in the homeschool? 

Well, I do understand your apprehension, but I’m also here to tell you that you don’t have to worry. 

With the right activities, you can have them loving composer studies, and then use composer studies to get them into music appreciation. 

I know, your biggest question now, is what are those activities and how do you teach your kids when you don’t know the first thing about it?

Well, in this post I’m going to explain six different activities you can do with your pre-schoolers and I am even going to give you the tools like adorable printables and much more. 


Ok, let’s get started. 


Composer Stories

You can start by looking for age appropriate books on composers and their life stories or animated features on YouTube that tell funny stories about some of the greatest composers of all time. 

Read my post to find age appropriate composer study books Composer Biographies For All Ages. 


Notebooking Pages

There are tons of free and paid composer study related note booking pages for the 3 – 5 year cohort that you can find online. 

One great source is Teachers Pay Teachers. 

However, if you don’t have time to spend hours looking for printables that your kids would love, don’t worry, I have you covered. 

Just download the printables I have made available with this post, and you are good to go. 


Online Courses

Yes, online composer study courses are another fun way to get your pre-schoolers into music. 

Think they are really expensive, well they can be. But don’t worry, I have got you covered there as well. 

Just click on this link and let me give you a free preview of the composer studies unit just for your little one. 


Hands On Activities

Once you’ve done the above, and taught your little one some facts about composers like the birth country, year of birth, famous composition, age the composer lived in etc, you can do some really fun hands on activities with your little one. 

For starters you can help her create a lap book or a scrap book with pictures from the composers country, the instruments the composer played, pictures of the composer etc. 

What do you think?


Field Activities

How about some field activities, take your little one to an instrument store where he can touch and feel an instrument that the composer played?

How about going to a music show that features compositions of the composer. 


Listening Activities

Finally, you can create a playlist of music by the composer and have it playing the background of your homeschool classroom. 

What do you think of that? 

Don’t you think it would help your child become more accustomed with music of great composers?


Now over to you.

Let me know what other activities you can add over and above the ones I have suggested here.

My daughter loved the games, but there were also worksheets and videos. The weekly lesson plans were complete, and I never questioned what I should be doing next.

What are you waiting for?

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.
