J.S. Bach, Internet Resources

Our first composer of the year will be J.S. Bach. I have some resources at school, but googled “Bach for Kids” to see what might be online. Some of it is pretty standard, but I found a few things I’ve never seen before! (Be sure to take a look at the “Discover Bach” series near the bottom of the page. I haven’t watched it all, but because it’s broken into short segments I think it’s something I might use.)
On all of these, switch to full screen to avoid advertising.

A page of performances to choose from, however, I couldn’t figure out how to make any of them full screen. I also didn’t watch all of them, so screen before using.

Bach quotes:

Johann Sebastian Bach

Born: 1685-03-21
Died: 1750-07-28

It’s easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.

My present post amounts to about 700 thaler, and when there are rather more funerals than usual, the fees rise in proportion; but when a healthy wind blows, they fall accordingly…
