Teacher’s Guides are available. These guides emphasize the importance of introducing children to, and generating enthusiasm for, classical music by first building a theme recognition foundation. The guides then give proposals for using each of the 40 classical music themes in each volume to introduce the relevant music concepts and the appropriate National Music Teaching Standards. This curriculum material is adaptable to any age group.
