Now that we've established our base range of products, we can start adding to them! This is the second product in our "Composer Activity Guide" range, for children ages 0-6 (with their parents and carers)!
The Composer Activity Guides are designed to introduce young children to classical music figures through words, music, and activities. They consist of two types of content:
Information pages are laid out with a simple text for parents/carers to read. You may choose to read the information page to the child or relay any relevant details in your own way as they engage with the music and activities. At the bottom of each information page, you will find the title of a classical music work for you and your child to listen to. You can use your favourite streaming service to find the musical works, or just bookmark this page - you will find all the selected works further down!
Activities are designed to be initiated and guided by an adult, with the intention of ultimately inspiring the child to continue exploring, playing, and learning independently. We trust that you will utilise both the information and the activities in a way which works for you and your child at their unique developmental stage!
After each information page, you will find two stages of activities:
Stage 1 is generally most suitable for ages 0-3.
Stage 2 is generally most suitable for ages 3-6.
