      Sounds to me like I need a CD! With 50 composers to highlight, I may need two, and uh oh, the price starts to go up on the book. I want to keep it under $20 and have it in color, so things are getting more complicated. Still, I believe the CD inclusion is important. And the online backup with even more listening for kids. Hopefully, I can find all Itune downloads as well. Well, back to work!!!!!!! Thank you all so much.

      I agree with Lauren that the book should include a CD.  I use CD's, iTunes and Pandora Radio in my classroom.

      You are amazing!

      I vote for CD included.....but perhaps a dowloadable playlist on itunes would be cool for the younger generation of teachers and maybe even parents and kids!

      Good luck and thank you for your amazing contributions to the world of education!!!!!

      Hello, Everyone.

      I'm hard at work on a new book called "Great Composers for Kids: Connecting to the Lives & Music of 50 Classic Composers Through Art, Activities, and Music", a bit of a side-step from my usual art books, though many of the connection projects are art. The idea of the book is to help kids remember and connect with the music or lives of the most famous classical composers so they will remember that composer's name and recognize a famous piece of music ... maybe the next book will be song writers, theatre, and so on ... this one is all the big names from the past like Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schumann, Wagner, Vivaldi, and so forth.

      So-- I'm trying to  decide what buyers/readers/teachers/parents would expect on one issue: CD included or no CD included?
      If I don't have the CD, or if I do, I will have music for listening on my website either way:
      *** 50 selections (one for each composer) available on my website in a playlist, in the same order as they come in the book
      (I can also link to orchestras through youtube showing the pieces being played, and link to other interesting music websites about each composer.)

      Question: With all that is possible on the website, do you think I also need the CD included in the book? The CD would have 50 musical selections to match the 50 composers, but no other material.

      What would you expect if you were the buyer?

      I'd love to hear your responses. If you don't want to fill up our message board, you can write to me directly atmaryann@...

      This is a very challenging book to write but I'm enjoying it and whooboyhowdy am I learning a lot.

      Thank you for helping me!!
