The Composer Card Set that everyone has been asking for is ready to roll. If your students have had a blast collecting the Bach and Beethoven cards… then they are bound to be even more excited for a set that breaks away from the “Old Boys’ Club”.
That’s right… today’s Three Composer Card Set is jam-packed with some serious girl-power, including the likes of Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn, and Amy Beach.
We’ve had wonderful feedback from piano teachers who are discovering that these cards are a great way to include a little bit of music history into their lessons.
I personally have absolutely loved listening to my students tell me all about how Mozart was born in Austria which (apparently.. LOL) is where Ostriches are from… and how Beethoven used to dip his head in cold water before composing… and how J.S. Bach had 13 children.
I just can’t wait to see what my music history sleuths discover about the three composers in today’s card set.
Here Is Today’s Composer Card Set
As a female composer myself, I felt it was important that my students not only learn about the members of the “Old Boys’ Club” like Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart but to also soak up the fascinating information on other composers who added creativity, beauty, and innovation to the music world.
Today’s trading cards include all-female composers who contributed significantly to music history, often facing obstacles that required incredible determination and persistence.
We hope that the information your students discover inspires the budding composers in your studios and encourages them to explore music that they may not yet have heard!
You can download today’s Composer Trading Card Set (along with many others) in the Growing With WunderKeys Toolkit.
