Whether you devote only five minutes, or a full hour to music in your classroom, Five Minutes to Music History is a budget-stretching collection covering the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras. For each musical era, this book covers An overview of the musical era; "What was happening in America?" during that era; Famous composers (pictures and bios); Chronology of the era. Each section then includes study quizzes (fill in the blank, multiple choice, word scrambles, word finds, etc.) for use as review with your students. Finally, each section includes a choral arrangement (still fully reproducible) of a piece from that era, arranged for student-level SATB voicing with piano accompaniment.
