Mozart is one of the most famous well liked composers to ever live. Mozart began playing and writing music with his family at a very early age, and was truly a child prodigy. Mozart will probably rank among the first 5 composers you will want to expose your children to.

Living Books for Mozart Study
The books recommended are all amazing Living Books that are very enjoyable to read. They range in independent reading levels, but all of them make great read alouds. Even older kids enjoy listening to a simple easy reader read aloud by mom while snuggled up on the couch!
You Tube Videos
If you don’t have any Mozart music laying around and are either waiting for a cd to arrive in the mail, or to arrive at the library, you can listen to some of Mozart’s most famous pieces on youtube. Just go to you tube and type in Mozart, you will get many videos to choose from.
If your children have read any of the living books mention above, let them use these Notebooking Pages to narrate all they remember about Mozart’s life and work. Included in this set is Listening Sheets to document which pieces are your favorites, and timeline pages to use as you are reading to keep a mini timeline of the important events in Mozart’s life. Just click on the image to go to a full details page and sample preview of our growing collection of Composer Notebooking sets.
