Learn Classical Music with Cartoons

Learn all about classical music and composers the fun way -- by watching cartoons!

Learn Classical Music with Cartoons is one of the most fun and accessible music appreciation courses ever written for Music in Our Homeschool!

A joint effort by music teachers (and homeschool moms) Kathy Gossen and Gena Mayo, you'll find 37 separate composer studies with music to listen to-- by cartoon!

The cartoons range from the very vintage (1931!) to the very modern (Line Riders and other computer-generated graphics).

Every lesson also contains an optional movement activity to get the kids off the couch and moving their bodies to the music.

Printables such as the Study-a-Composer printable pack and Dynamics flashcards are also included.

And, you even get a 2-question online quiz for each lesson!

See a free preview of the J. Strauss Jr. and "Tales from the Vienna Woods lesson here.

All 37 composers and featured pieces are listed below under "Course Curriculum."

"The Learn Classical Music with Cartoons course is fantastic! It’s such a creative and brilliant way to introduce your children to classical music. I love the variations of cartoon videos used and the information shared about each composer. We enjoyed using the printables provided so we can dive as deep into the study as we desire to. This is such a great addition to our music appreciation lessons and definitely one that my boys have truly enjoyed."
