75/1084H Classics Come Alive! / Book by Mark Burrows
Classics Come Alive! is a collection of 20 stories from the history of classical music, ranging from the Middle Ages to Modern Day. Each story is fun, educational, and highly interactive, inviting students to be not just attentive listeners, but active participants. Each is 3–5 minutes long, perfect as a short introduction to a composer, an end-of-class activity when you have a few minutes left and need something fun and content-rich, or a connector activity between an element of music you are exploring and a famous composer. But best of all, there are no materials needed, no props, no set up, no prep. Just you, your students, and the readiness to explore some great stories in new ways!
