Study Some of the Most Talented Composers in History

This resource includes timeline pieces and lines to teach about twenty-six famous composers from various eras, countries, and musical periods as well as one selection of your choice which can be added on the blank piece provided.

Cut out pieces to construct the timeline and assemble according to the instructions. Using the dates on the pieces as a guide, place the pieces on the timeline in the order that they occur.  There will be three pieces to a line.  Many children enjoy moving the pieces to make way for others, so don't worry about putting each on perfectly.  Using mac-tack on the back of pieces makes moving pieces very easy.
