This page contains CD's you can purchase for the CLASSICAL MUSIC PROJECT...ones that go along with
the various activities, and make them easier and quicker to master. These are not mere CD's, but instead
parts of an extensive course of study; i.e., they teach you something, and the composers' pieces are thus arranged in a specific and logical order. Each serves an IMPORTANT purpose in making the user a veritable classical music "fountain of knowledge". NOTE to administrators...it is possible to purchase a site license where the district can burn copies of the CD' for use by its students. See below. After that go to the 5. Course of Study/StageHouse to see the directions that will guide you through the whole PROJECT. Click Here.

This disk is a free one for teachers who want to see how well the course works with their classes. It contains only 5 of the course's 40 classical composers and only 18 of the 109 pieces. Included with it is a Recognition/Evaluation sheet (Click here) the teacher can use with his/her classes. On it the students note whether or not they have ever heard the pieces before, and whether they like them or not. Interesting results....and takes only five minutes at the beginning of a class, whether it be music or math...and at any level...5th grade to college. Teachers should go to the Homebase Menu on the www.ClasssicalMusicProject.com site for more instructions. Go to HomeBase now...Click here.

Cost: Zilch, only $5 S&H

This is a single CD that contains the same pieces as the Remedy for Rap CD set, but in different order. It actually is a self testing tool in which the "Sparklers* (that's our pet name for the pieces) are presented one at a time with a pause after each one...a time when the listener guesses its name and composer...then this information is provided by the narrator. This CD directly corresponds to learning activities on the www.ClassicalMusicProject.com site. Click here to go to those. If a person uses these together, he/she can actually name the the 109 pieces and composers...quite a feat, and one that any college professor of Music History/Appreciation would be proud of his/her students accomplishing. Of course, there are elementary school students who can achieve this also. Self-discipline and tenacity are the needed ingredients.

This is a 2 CD set that contains the factual part of the course. Interesting facts are narrated about the 40 great classical composers, and then their most familiar works are identified one by one, with corresponding musical excerpts of each. The children of elementary and middle schools like to have their own copies of these, and they are allowed to buy them. At higher levels, instructors usually like their students to also have their own copies, and therefore require purchase as part of course requirements. As for the name Remedy for Rap...it to be redundant, it merely represents the name of an imaginary tour around Europe in which the "patients" visit the "clinics" of 40 "rapaphobic doctors" (the classical music composers), and where they receive "potions" or medicines (the 109 most familiar pieces of these composers) to build up their "immunity" to Rap. We thought it was a catchy theme, and only meant it to be fun...period. So, Rap lovers, and everyone else, please just take it that way...a fun, imaginary trip. We think you will enjoy it. You surely are going to learn a lot of classical music and interesting facts about the composers from it...and even some geography. The composers are "visited" in chronological order of their births, so the evolution of classical music can be noted. The Set also contains a 20 page booklet listing the works covered and a summary of interesting facts about the composers. Additionally, there is a recognition/evaluation sheet you can follow along with and note if you recognize each piece, and note which ones you like...downloadable here...Click.

Cost: 2 CD Set, $25, plus S&H...Click here.

This CD contains the 109 Sparklers with each lasting as long as we could fit on 2 CD's. It is for pure enjoyment.

NOTE: Due to licensing agreements and public domain requirements, these CD's are not for sale outside the United States, or in retail stores.  Also you must be a student, a parent of a student for whom you are buying the CD's, an educator, a homeschooler, a librarian, or academic bookstore orderer. This should not give the reader the impression these are not professionally done CD's. The narrator, Justin Sheehan, is an accomplished narrator, and the CD art work, booklet, and CD disks themselves were rendered by ESP Corporation of Buffalo, New York...one of the premier CD production companies in the United States. The music itself is licensed from Delta Corporation, of Los Angeles, California...publisher of the Laserlight line of classical music CD's. The reason for the restricted licensing is due to the desire to keep the prices of the materials as low as possible...by making them only available in educational settings.
