Earlier this month, I shared with your some ways to bring Music into your homeschool this February. A reader brought to my attention how she would loved the idea of studying composers who’s birthdays were in that month.
And that gave me a wonderful idea – Monthly Composer Studies! So for the month of February we’re going to study George Frideric Handel. I have created a fun little pack that will help you get started on your studies!!
Included in this pack:
- Poster Page
- Bio Pages
- Word Search
- Coloring Page
- Notebooking Pages
- Timeline worksheet
If you want more notebooking pages, be sure to grab the ones I made back in November. They will work perfectly to study any composer as you go through the month of February. I’ve also gathered some great resources you can use while you’re studying Handel this month.
Check out this page FULL of recorded works by Handel. It takes a few clicks to get to the actual songs, but keep going – it’s worth it!!
Here’s a great YouTube video that includes the best of Handel. This would be great to play softly while you’re reading about him or doing other work, just to introduce it to the kids.
This is another YouTube video playlist that is actually separated out, so you can pick and choose songs to listen to as you study or read more about them.
This is a wonderful series of books that is illustrated and fun for young kids to learn about the classical composers!
This is another fun book for kids. Donna Leon has gone through Handel’s works and identified the animal references in his music. Kids will enjoy listening to the music while trying to hear the allusion to different animals. So many activities you can do with this one book!!
This is a great book for older students. It is a wonderful portrayal of his life and his music. It is very detailed, which is why I suggest it for older kids.
SQUILT is another fantastic way to introduce kids to music and help them fall in love with the classics. Grab the SQUILT: Volume I: Baroque Composers and learn more about the period of music Handel composed during.
