The 7th Grade Music Appreciation Class has been researching a music composer from the Baroque, Classical and Jazz periods. They then made a power point and presented their findings in class.   Some of the research included:
Birth/Death dates
Period of Music history
Age started learning about music
Years active as a musician
Songs by the composer
Instruments played
Musical jobs they had
City/Country they lived in
If their parents or other family members were musicians
They also had to find pictures of their family, house, workplace, autograph and grave.  At the end of the presentation they were to find a song by the composer and play a short portion of their music.
Many of the songs that are used today in movies, television, cartoons, computer games and cell phone rings are from these long ago musicians.
