    Great Introduction to classical music for kids!

    My 7 year old began taking piano lessons 6 months ago. In light of this I bought this cd for him to introduce him to classical composers & the standards of classical music. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. The songs are edited; not too long & drawn out, just perfect for kid's attention span. Also, the "lyrics" added seem a bit corny at first listen, but the sheer genius of the lyrics make their way to the fore front quickly. It also has all of the tracks without the "lyrics".

    At first my son was not interested in the tracks with the lyrics, he preferred the musical tracks. However, that has changed lately as he has began listening to the lyric tracks. Now, he will play the musical tracks & add the lyrics himself! This is a very good series, it it the perfect way to introduce children to classical music.

    Big hit in our house

    I bought Beethoven's Wig for our 3.5 and 1.5 year old daughters after listening to it at a friend's. Both of them LOVE it, maybe as importantly both my husband and I enjoy it also - the music itself it great, no questions there, and the lyrics make it fun for the kids. The fact that the lyrics mention the composers name during the piece is awesome - heck I am learning, I am sure they will soon, too.

    I will buy the others in the series soon. Highly recommend it if you are tired of listening to the same "kids music" over and over and over again.

    It only took 1 time

    With classical music, most children acquire a taste for it after years of listening via their parents. This CD instantly hooked my 5 year old son. He proudly says he loves opera! He at first loved the music, but once he discovered that the words were describing the composers and their music, its like Discover Channel on CD!

    Fantastic!

    As a lover of Classical Music, I bought this for my 5 yr-old daughter who absolutely cannot get enough of Beethoven's Wig (not to mention the Can-Can song)! As with her earlier collection of Baby Einstein, she is fascinated w/the delightful music! Many THANKS to Richard Perlmutter for this wonderful enchantment of such fabulous music! We HIGHLY recommend it!

    WARNING!!! GATEWAY CD!!!

    You've heard of "gateway drugs"? Well, this cd is a gateway to classical music. My 7 and 9yo got hooked on this and progressed quite naturally/happily to The Best of Beethoven and the rest of our small classical music collection. We love it!

    Love it

    My father-in-law bought it for my 1 year old daughter. She digs it. I find her dancing to the songs. I love it too. I had never been exposed to classical and now I am learning the songs. They really do stick in your brain. Very clever. I plan on buying it for all the kids in my life for the holidays.

    My kids' favorite CD - adults love it, too!

    My kids are ages 6 and 8 and they absolutely love this CD. The lyrics are very catchy, and adults will find themselves with the symphonies firmly stuck in their heads, too. This is a great way to introduce classical music to children or reinforce their love of it.
