View Full Version : Music: An Appreciation

I have 2 questions regarding this book. First, I noticed that I received the 6th edition with my order, but TOG pages are from the 5th edition. Will there be updates made to the reading assignments to match the edition currently being sold.
Secondly, I noticed that not all of the Classical unit chapters are covered in Year 2. Are those that were omitted covered at the beginning of Year 3. Specifically I am looking at chapters 6-10 and 12 if I lined the pages up correctly. If they are not covered in Year 3, I want to add them on at the end of Year 2, but if they are covered in Year 3 I don't have to worry about it.

Yes, there will be updates and these will be posted on the Loom for you.
And yes, the classical unit chapters continue into Year 3.

I'm wondering if you have a listing of the assignments for years 2 and 3 by topic/title/subtitle, so those of us with different versions can find them in our version?

The musicians being studied are listed in the learning threads under "Fine Arts/Activities" for each week on page 2. It's easy to figure out from there. http://tapestryofgrace.groupee.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Well, sometimes it is, and sometimes it isn't. For example, in Week 23, It's listed on Reading Assignment p. 4 as "p. 112-118 (stop at "Claudio Monteverdi"), but there is nothing in either the Fine Arts and Activities Threads (p. 2, to which you referred me), nor in the Teacher's Notes pp. 59-60, which talk about ballet and baroque opera. I don't think this week is unique. Is there any way to get a comprehensive weekly listing of the composers being studied, so those of us with older/different versions/resources can follow along? Or am I missing it in the curriculum?
Thanks for any help you can give.

If you want to develop your own list of composers try http://www.classical.com/ You can sign up and listen for free to 1 minute tracks and they have a timeline that shows dates for different composers. Also you can search by period: medieval, renaissance, pre-classical, etc. I usually look at the dates listed for the timeline on page 6 of ToG and pick something from the time frame. In the past I have gotten CDs from the library, but now I will probably use classical.com. You can "google" a composer's name for bios or use your library for children's biographies, too.
Hope this helps,

I'm looking for the updates that Lisa requested in the original post - the page numbers for the 6th edition of this book. It looks like Dana says they would be in the Loom, but so far I haven't found them. Am I looking in the wrong place? I looked under book corrections first, but didn't see them. Then,under errata. I popped in my old Loom CD to look for them.
Anybody know what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks for the help!

Never mind - I found it! http://tapestryofgrace.groupee.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif All I had to do was hit "enter" and I found it on the old CD. I clicked on the wrong icon to open it...all the DE stuff still confuses me. http://tapestryofgrace.groupee.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif
