The Young Scholar’s Guide to Composers is a music history and appreciation course from Bright Ideas Press.

It is a good music elective for homeschoolers. The writers based the Young Scholar’s Guide to Composers on the following premises:

  • “Music is from the Lord. He created it, and He created us with the ability to both make and appreciate music.”
  • “Classical” music is uniquely part of our Western civilization.”
  • “Research suggests that both listening to and playing classical music aids brain development.”
  • “Even rudimentary exposure increases one’s level of enjoyment and understanding.”
