Though the historical world of music seems to have been largely dominated by men, women have been making music since the dawn of time.
Take this 20 week journey through the ages to experience the contributions of 100 women composers from the Byzantine era, through the Renaissance, Classical, Romantic, and Modern eras, all the way up to contemporary women composers that are still alive and creating music today! Each day you’ll get to know a bit about these talented and innovative women from many different times, cultures, and nations, and be introduced to their work with this delightful, straight-to-your-inbox music appreciation program called Sound Bites!
It’s so easy: You’ll receive a simple email each weekday for 20 weeks that features the music of the day. One click from that email will hop you right over to Youtube so you can watch & listen to a video of the featured piece. Easily accessed on your phones, tablets, and computers, you will finally be able to include a consistent music appreciation component to your days, without any planning required.
You can listen during breakfast or lunch, during chores, or perhaps during some quiet drawing time. However you want to implement it, your daily Sound Bites will be ready when you are.
This collection is perfect for relaxed learning at any time of year.
