Many piano teachers subscribe to Clavier magazine, and some even subscribe their students to Clavier’s Piano Explorer, the music magazine for kids. I recently found out that their site contains some great resources for teaching about various composers and concepts in music history. This month, there have some great resources about Beethoven, including:
- Links to YouTube recordings, organized by Beethoven’s early, middle, and late compositional periods – click here and scroll down.
- A pdf worksheet about sonata form, to be filled out while listening to Beethoven’s Pathetique Sonata – click here and click “pdf” under Sonata Form.
These resources would be perfect for a summer camp or a group lesson!
