Category Description for Classical Kids:

Each audio is a unique combination of music, history and dramatic story-telling, designed to both introduce children to the composers and their music. Each story includes at least one child interacting with the composer, helping the younger set to identify with a character and get a better feel for the historical time period. Trials and triumphs of the great composers are experienced. Stories are based on historical fact. Unlike the Music Masters series, which uses a narrator between musical excerpts to tell you about the composer's life, these tapes use actors and dramatization to bring the story alive. Each composer's music is featured throughout the tape, giving children a taste of their best-loved pieces. All have won Parents' choice awards and other musical awards.

Teacher Notes include additional background information, discussion topics, activity ideas and suggestions for exploring the music.

We LOVE this CD! It has opened an enitre new musical door to my kids who thought the traditional composers were all that there was to know Patooey! Bach is great but the stories of these operas - the theater - it's better than musicals It's musicals with classical studies! We adore this - my kids are all humming Puccini! I play it in the morning and they read the words (that are in English and come in the CD case) - please make more and please sell everything they create AND thanks for making it available - I was just looking for classical music for kids - it's wonderful!
