Composer's Special Series 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This series is great for introducing students to composers. The DVD's are both entertaining and informative. Though the actual story line is fictious, how the composers are protrayed is realistic. I have used this series with my 6th grade general music class with great success.
