Periods of Classical Music – PowerPoint Lessons

These are the PowerPoint lessons I did on the different periods of classical music with my music appreciation class. Feel free to use them, but please credit me or provide a link to my website.

The printed music included should all be Public Domain because the composers are long-dead, and I can include a a bibliography of titles of pieces used in the samples on slideshow if necessary. The hammered dulcimer musician’s YouTube is DizziDulcimer, the Bach Counterpoint example is by Glenn Gould.


Periods of Classical Music 1 – MedRen

Periods of Classical Music 2 – BarCla

Periods of Classical Music 3 – Rom&20th

I cannot upload the sound samples here, but if you need them for a lesson I can send them to you, or send titles so you can look them up. It’s planning period now, so I will add the titles later when I have more time. Looking forward to the color guard class in a few minutes!


About Lady Fair

Lady is a musician with a bachelor's degree in music education. She plays multiple instruments and has participated in numerous musical ensembles, giving her a wide variety of experiences and knowledge to use in her teaching career. Of her ensemble participation, she has fifteen years of band experience, nine years choral, and four years in orchestra. Éowyn's primary instrument is clarinet, with voice and piano being close secondary instruments. Throughout her musical education career she studied voice and clarinet simultaneously. In addition to clarinet, piano, and voice, she has also studied violin and oboe at the college level, and also plays recorder, tin whistle, and other instruments in the woodwind family. If you ask her, she will say, "I chose to major in music education because I have a desire to use my knowledge and experience in music to share its beauty and foster a love of music in the hearts of my students. I hope to encourage my students to try their hardest, feel like they have accomplished something, and give them a life long passion for music." Lady currently teaches private lessons on clarinet, sax, flute, oboe, piano, and voice, and recently gained a position teaching orchestra and chorus at a local middle school. She is also a member of the Once Upon a Dream woodwind ensembles.
