Great to have to help with my Picture’s lessons! This really enhanced what I originally had.

I really enjoyed using this resource in my multi-level instrumental music class. Our class was playing “Pictures at an Exhibition”, and this resource really helped us learn more about the history of the piece as we rehearsed it! Although the pictures were a little juvenile for the high school level, my students still found it engaging!
