Ludwig Beethoven and the Chiming Tower Bells Study Guide


Ludwig Beethoven and the Chiming Tower Bells Study Guide

Printer Friendly Version

Publisher: Zeezok Publishing

Author: Judy Wilcox

List Price: Paperback $4.95

Ages: All Ages

Reviewed By: Jean Hall

The biography series from Zeezok Publishing, introducing children to the lives of great composers, has been a real boon in our music studies. I wish I'd read them when I was a young music student!

The biographies themselves are written in a simple and engaging style, lots of events and anecdotal accounts that give you a flavor of a composer's childhood and subsequent musical vocation. There are lots of people and place names, but if you want dates you'll have to look them up elsewhere.

Perhaps the easiest course would be using the study guides associated with the biographies. The Ludwig Beethoven and the Chiming Tower Bells Study Guide has a map of Europe with the cities Beethoven visited or lived in, a timeline of events in the great composer's life, and more. There are reading comprehension questions, complete with page number references that correspond to the biography. For each chapter, character qualities are discussed and "Tidbits of Interest" give further information about the life and culture of the composer's time and surroundings. Pen and ink drawings illuminate the notes.

We have gotten a lot out of this series on composers' lives, and look forward to reading more.
