Summer School Cycle A Classical Music

The Music at a Glance for this Summer

In deciding against the purchase of a good classical music learning CD and only using free on-line resources, I made things really difficult for myself when it comes to reviewing with the kids.  Yes, I sit here and individually type in the names of each of our previous songs and find the YouTube video we watched for each week over and over.  So, this post is to help centralize those on-line resources.  I'll add more links as we get to those weeks.

Week 1: Bach's Jesus Joy of Man's Desiring and Brandenburg Concerto No. 5

Week 2: Bach's Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor and The Well Tempered Clavier

Week 3: Handel's Messiah

Week 4: Handel's Water Music

Week 5: Vivaldi Spring and  Summer Presto

Week 6:Vivaldi Fall and Winter

Week 7: Haydn's No. 94 in G Maj. (the Surprise) & Piano Sonata in D. Major

Week 8: Haydn's The Creation (Oratorio) & The Emperor’s Hymn

Week 9: Mozart's Overture to the Magic Flute

Week 10: (undecided as to which Mozart piece to choose for this week)

Week 11: Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, mvt. 1 & Fur Elise

Week 12:  Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata and Symphone No. 6, 2nd movement

Rebecca! Do you have a youtube account? (It's free and easy...) If you do, just hit "add to favorites" when you're playing the song.

Then, the next time, all you have to do is go to your favorites, hit "continuous play," and it will play them one after the other. Or, if you don't want it to do that, don't hit continuous play, and you can manually scroll down to the next song and hit play when you're ready.

Much faster!

(Or, you could go fancy and create a playlist, which isn't hard either...)

Genius!! Thank you! I do have a YouTube account and can follow your instructions. I'd need a tutorial on making a playlist though. Again, THANK YOU!!

Try Mahler's 2nd. You will be amazed especially the last movement!
