Maestro Classics

I'd love to introduce you to: Masetro Classics

Entitled - "Stories in Music", I was sent "Peter and the Wolf", music by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with Stephen Simon,conductor and Yadu, Narrator. I was not paid for my honest review of this product.

For my long-time friends (you know who you are...) You know how much I LOVE classical music, and introducing it to children (reluctant or not...)

Well, this CD combines both the classical music and a children's story. You will be introduced to the Composer, learn about the music, enjoy the story and have the opportunity to hear the fabulous London Philharmonic Orchestra in action.

"Music lesson in a box" is the what they call it. This CD came with an informative, activity filled booklet. Informative, with pictures of different instruments, and even sheet music, it was a great addition to the CD. And, I check out their website and discovered even more activities and lesson plans available. Not to mention, they have quite a number of classic children's stories (I can't wait to order "Casey at the Bat" - we love that story!) combined with great classical music. I call that covering two subjects at once - and it's fun!

Listening to classical music has proven benefits, both for you and your children. I highly recommend this product. We listened to it while driving around (we call if van-schooling...anyone with me on this?) The kiddos all loved it. We are familiar with the orchestra and story of "Peter and the Wolf", but we really enjoyed the narration,and the information about the composer, including all the "extras" on this 68 minute long CD.

For an affordable $16.98, you can introduce your child to a classic story and the classical music to go with it.
