Discovering Music Set, Second Edition


Professor Carol’s ground-breaking course takes the student through 300 years of interaction in Music, Art, History, and Culture. With a focus on Western Music from 1600 to 1914, the course ties it all together: music, science, poetry, politics, geography, economics, painting, and literature. Art and music make the course colorful and memorable throughout.

Join Professor Carol as she travels the world using music as the window into political and cultural history. The expanded second edition includes a separate Textbook—now including art and additional information—and a Student Workbook—with more activities, questions, and timelines—which both still correspond perfectly to the first edition DVDs. A downloadable copy of the Teacher Manual is also included. No music background is required by either the parent or the student.
