300 Years of Interaction in Music, Arts, History, and Culture

The arts are often viewed today as "extra"-curricular; but music was one of the seven liberal arts considered essential to a Classical education. The arts provide one of the best insights into a particular time and place. Imagine someone 200 years from now trying to understand today's American culture without ever considering our books, music, films, or television programs. These artistic forms contain a lot of information about our culture -- information that can only be grasped by experiencing that art. The same is true for any historical period.

When a student is exposed to the art and music of a time and place, the historical personalities and events are brought into clearer focus and linked together in more meaningful ways, essentially bringing history, music, and the arts ALIVE and making them relevant for the student. Students will journey around the globe with Professor Carol on a lively and entertaining romp through history, while also adding a serious study of music and the arts.

Professor Carol does all of the instruction for you! Program/s include terminology, annotations, projects, viewing guides, and quizzes that track the video instruction. Musical examples coordinate with the course instruction. Professor Carol and many other experts tie the history of art and music to math, science, technology, geography, and more using (1) Location Footage, (2) Interviews With Experts, and (3) Musical Performances. BUT, the good news is that there is no prior Music experience required!

My 8th grade son & I just finished the last chapter of this course. It was amazing! I highly recommend it. We used it as a stand alone high school history curriculum (for those doing 9th or 10th grade work). Prof. Carol is a wealth of info. & consistently integrates what's happening in the world along w/ the history of the music so you get a comprehensive understanding of the time period & context of events. I'm so glad that Prof. Carol created this program so the next generation can gain a classical educ. in music - something lacking in m...(more)

We are learning so much about music and history with this fantastic curriculum! Professor Carol is passionate about music and history, and this translates to her being very interesting to watch. My son is using Discovering Music as a high school fine arts credit this year, and I have purchased an additional book for my daughter to use when she reaches high school. I have already recommended the curriculum to a number of my fellow homeschoolers.

We LOVE our 300 Years of Interaction in Western Music, Arts, History, and Culture program. It is so thorough and exciting. We actually do it at night when everyone (Dad!) is home and can learn from it. My 12 year old daughter just loves how it always touches upon something we are studying in a different subject during the day, like science. This is a program that we will be using every year because there is so much there we can always learn new things each time. It is very easily absorbed. Carol Reynolds is entertaining and fun and brings a...(more)
C. Higgins, Co-op Member
We have put it aside until next year, as my son's schedule is very intense this year. However, I have looked over the product and have no doubt that we will very much enjoy the course.
Ann S., Co-op Member
My children and I are enjoying are journey through music and history. I love the perspective that Professor Carol shares on music, history, and culture - including European perceptions about Americans. We are stretching our minds and or ears while having a blast learning.

This year we are using Discovering music as a supplement and focusing mainly on learning about music. I plan to use it again in a couple of years with the same children plus my youngest as European history. We'll just delve deeper into to supplemental readings focused on...(more)

Discovering Music has been great for my teen age son. Not only does it teach all about music but in those lessons are also history, art, social studies, culture, and information about different countries and eras. All of this in formats that are interesting; videos, pictures, music, and some reading. My son is engaged and talks about what he has learned at the dinner table. He loves this program and it has been worth every penny. This is our second year of subscribing because there's so much offered with the subscription that my son...(more)

We are loving Discovering Music. My 15 yod and 14 yos can't wait to watch Professor Carol and listen to all the music she suggests. After his assignment listening to Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag, in fact, he asked for the sheet music for his birthday and is having fun with it on the piano.

I am thrilled with all they are being exposed to, and there is minimal preparation for me. We are looking forward to all we will learn this year. I'm so glad my friend told me about using this program last year, and I'm sharing how much we like it on my ...(more)

Discovering Music is an extremely interesting course that is packed full of music, history, and culture. Carol Reynolds is a very knowledgeable and dynamic teacher. I love it, and plan to watch it more than once. Our children ages 5, 7, 9, and 11 watch it, but do not love it, as I do, as it is better suited to a slightly more mature audience.

HOWEVER, while I do think it is a fantastic series, not all of the episodes are as multimedia-fast-paced-entertaining as we expected they would be after watching the trailer/advertisement video. There...(more)
A. Mack, Co-op Member
I can honestly say that every student should have an opportunity to do this series. The videos alone are reason enough to get it. This course broadens your perspective in ways that no college education ever came close to doing.

I got as much out of it as my daughter did and plan on showing it to the rest of the family as soon as possible. My daughter (12) loves it. It is encompasses much more than just music. VERY thoughtfully presented.

Students younger than 10 might not follow it well, but if older siblings watch, they migh...(more)

My DD (16) and I are watching the Discovering Music DVDs together. We really like Dr. Carol's casual, but meaty, approach to music--history, appreciation, connections with political history, etc. I think we're going to like this program as we integrate the arts and other subjects into our chronological studies. And, my young boys are listening to the music selections with us so we can appreciate the styles of music as a family. Thank you, HSBC, for offering this great product!
