About Us

Every month we have a featured composer of classical or art music. For the featured composer you'll find a biography, videos, famous pieces and lesson plans.

You'll also be able to learn about the composer's time period and concepts relating to his or her life and music. Composer of the Month.COM also has teacher resources and links to other websites.

Composer of the Month.com was created by Frannie Goldstein, an elementary music educator for more than 30 years.  Frannie's students and their parents were always asking for information about the composer of the month - their enthusiasm inspired this website.
