We really love music at our house, and one of the very neatest and best ways to enjoy it is with Maestro Classics cd’s. The world renowned Philharmonic Orchestra plays while a classic story is narrated by the wonderful voice of Yadu. Then there are many other aspects of the story, music, song, composer, instruments, etc. to explore with every adventure. They have just added a few more titles to their wonderful collection too!

The website is an adventure in and of itself, so be sure to check out all the titles and neat extras they have going on over there!

For review we had the pleasure and great privilege of reviewing The Story of Swan Lake.

 The CD set can be purchased for $16.98, or mp3 download is just $9.98 on the website. This cd is for ages 5+ and families.

Also on the website you can find homeschool curriculum guides to accompany the cd’s which include activities, links and great info for language arts, geography, science, history, art, music, and even math! Just take a look at all the resources they have to go with these fabulous musical masterpieces!

You can also find home projects and teacher lesson plans full of amazing ideas. This is just a treasure box of jewels with way more than your wildest imagination would have ever dreamed up to teach your children to appreciate music in every aspect of it’s glorious nature.

Gunn Ranch Academy LOVES Maestro Classics!

 

We, at Gunn Ranch Academy, are most definitely Maestro Classic groupies. We have had the honor and privilege of reviewing two other cd’s, which have been played and thoroughly enjoyed over and over. Levi has almost worn out Peter and the Wolf, so I knew the Story of Swan Lake would be an instant hit. I knew Taylor would be thrilled to sit and listen with me since Swan Lake had been a favorite movie when she was little. When I saw that there was a section on guitars, I knew that would capture Levi’s attention as well.  At first Levi didn’t want to sit and listen, but he didn’t get too far away, and after a couple of passes through the room where we were listening, and hearing the familiar voice of the narrator Yadu, he was soon on my lap listening intently.

I just MUST re-iterate that for music appreciation, education and just pure enjoyment, I have NEVER found anything out there that even compares to Maestro Classics. From the first time I heard of the company, I was just captivated by their gifts and talents for bringing the whole music experience alive for a younger audience. And I’ve watched this product line grow and the website add even more amazing and valuable resources that are just incomparable to any others. I can’t express strongly enough how awesome Maestro Classics is. You just HAVE TO experience it for yourself!
