Teaching classical music to little ones can be intimidating. How can you engage littles in classical music? Give them Maestro Classics!! These CD’s and the accompanying activity books bring music to life for kids of all ages. Over the past few years, we have had the opportunity to review a few of their CDs, and we’ve purchased a few more. They are excellent, and I highly recommend them for your homeschool or classroom use. You won’t be sorry!

Each title can be purchased as a CD with an activity book included or as a n MP3 download with a PDF activity book. The activity books contain information about the composer, the music, and activities such as crossword puzzles, word searches, decoding, and more.
In addition to all of the fun stuff included in the activity books, Maestro Classics even has an entire section of Educational Materials on their site. This section includes lesson plans, projects, and ideas for teaching across the curriculum with the Maestro Classics CDs.
