Composer Study with 10 Lesser-Known Composers

If you've been doing Composer Study for a while, you might be getting a little bored with hearing the same composers all the time. I'm excited to introduce you to 10 new ones today that you may have never heard of before!

This simple-to-use, click-and-go online course is perfect for all ages.

The composers are:

  • Georg Telemann
  • Maria Theresa Paradis
  • Charles Gounod
  • Bedřich Smetana
  • Alexander Borodin
  • Edward Elgar
  • Isaac Albéniz
  • Amy Beach
  • Alexander Scriabin
  • Ottorino Respighi

Each composer has four videos of music (and one downloadable mp3 version) of music to listen to. The purpose of this intensive focus on one composer is to

"let young people study as far as possible under one master until they have received some of this teaching and know its style." ~Charlotte Mason
