Musical Timeline Wall

Music history timeline of composers

My classroom has a music timeline wall with the different musical time periods.  Composers of music that students are studying get added to the appropriate timeline so students have a visual of each composer and his or her place in history.  Each time period has a little collage of the architecture, art, fashion, and music of the time.  Composers studied in 5th grade are on top; 6th grade is on the bottom.  Each time period is color-coded, and each composer poster includes a pictures, dates, country, and title of piece the students are playing.  By the end of the year the cupboards are pretty full!  

I have more wall space at my other school, so here is the pdf of the larger composer posters and a Word document to add your own composers (scroll down to the bottom to see an example of the finished product).  If you're tight on space, here's a much smaller version with just composers from the Orchestra Expressions method book, book one.
