As the Holidays approach, we would love to share some of our favorite musical gift picks for kids. All of the books and cd’s below pack a tremendous amount of musical knowledge into a format so fun that your kids won’t even realize that they are learning – which is a lot like Musication!
1 ) Peter and the Wolf – Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf is a wonderful way to introduce your little one to the sounds and instruments of an orchestra and with this book and CD package, your child can look and listen at the same time.
2) Jeremy Plays Guitar, makes music that is not only educational, it ROCKS! Recognizing that kids naturally and organically learn through music, Jeremy Plays Guitar reinforces language development and social skills training through catchy, fun music for kids. And right now, you can get all 3 CD’s for $15!
3) Carnival of the Animals this comical musical suite by Camille Saint-Saëns is still as entertaining as it was when is was first written in 1886 and the beautifully illustrated companion book in this version makes it a wonderful gift.
4) Can You Hear It? In this book and CD set, well known classical music is accompanied by works of art as children are encourage to listen for certain instruments. Produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this set is destined to become a classic.
5) Musication lessons! Of course if you really want to give your kid the gift of music, you cant go wrong with piano lessons. Registration is now open for our Winter session of Musication lessons.
We hope you and your children enjoy our gift list and Happy Holidays from everyone at Musication!
