New Composer Lapbook: Amy Beach

I’m proud to announce that the first woman composer lapbook has been added to the Color In My Piano shop: Amy Beach!

Beach both

Studying Amy Beach gave us the opportunity to discuss the challenges of being a woman composer, especially during Beach’s day.  Among other things, we learned about the MacDowell Colony and how Beach’s perfect pitch allowed her to write down bird calls in musical notation.

The Color In My Piano Shop now has 16 different composer lapbooks to choose from!  Check them out here.
