ADVICE FOR PROFESSORS

 
Classical Music Project


ATTENTION: Before going any further, we must say that you MUST be using Internet Explorer to view and take part in the Classical Music Project. Other browsers simply will not render the interactive activities contained within, nor display the controls for audio files that are so an integral a part of the program. So if you are using a Mac, or such browsers as Firefox, or Opera, you simply can't use the Project.  We are sorry about this, but cannot help it at this time. Luckily, Internet Explorer is part of Windows.

I
ntro: The Classical Music Project is a perfect fit for a college professor teaching music appreciation. The project can be used in its entirely or in part...depending on the decision of the professor involved.

To best understand it's scope, the FIRST thing a professor should do is go to the Project's home page and just spend about an hour, yes, about a WHOLE hour, there clicking on everything in sight...and examine especially the red boxed menu called the Course of Study/StageHouse.  So do so now, and then come back here. Click.

...later...back again...as your saw if you clicked on the red Course of Study/Stagehouse button, the Project consists of three levels comprising 22 "Stages":

LEVEL ONE: LEARNING COMPOSER'S NAMES AND FACES
LEVEL TWO: LEARNING INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE COMPOSERS
LEVEL THREE: LEARNING THE SPARKLERS BY NAME, COMPOSER, AND SOUND


The first two levels enable the learner to become acquainted with the composers (40 of them from Baroque, up to the neo-classical period) in a personal way, .i.e, their names, their appearance, interesting facts about them, and finally a cursory overview of their most familiar works (109 of their works). Then, for LEVEL THREE the learner is led, via flashcards, PowerPoint presentations, Html interactive activities, flashcards, self-tests, etc.  to a knowledge of the names and sound recognition of the 109 pieces themselves.  Music theory is not an objective of the Project.

So...look at course Project over, and if you decide to use it in your course, it's free. It's up to you if you decide how you want to use the Project. You can call your bookstore and make arrangements for it 


Ordering Materials

Teachers need to have a whole course set...as shown below. The Whole Course Set..see descriptions... consists of 6 CD's and costs $60, shipping and handling per set $5....yes, we will even throw in the Demo disk...so it can be given it to a student, another teacher, parent of a student a homeschooler, or an educational library...general public, NO...due to our own licensing restrictions.
