One-Page Composer Bios is a 100% reproducible book containing brief, informative, and interesting one-page biographies of 50 of history's greatest composers. Each biography page also includes: a picture or photograph of the composer; an interesting quote relating to his or her life or music; a listing of important compositions; dates of birth and death; and a pronunciation guide for non-English names. Use these easy-to-read bios as a complete course in composers or music history - studying as many or as few composers as you wish - or use them as supplemental material in the music classroom. Also included, as a bonus, are one-page histories of each of the six eras of music from the Medieval era through the 20th century. Recommended for grades 5 and up.
