Recommended Website:
Creative Kids Central

Age Range: 7-12 (Contains music and/or activities that all ages can enjoy.)

This website offers one of the best, web-based educational activities on classical music – designed just for kids – that I’ve seen.

When you get to the site you can use the menu on the left side of your screen to watch and listen to brief introductions to the symphony, opera, solo voice, solo instrument, choral music, and chamber music. Then, click on the icons to access THE BEST PARTS OF THE SITE:

  • Brahms Interactive – This online educational experience sets Brahms’ music to a story about Brahms and the culture of Vienna Austria in the 1890s. It includes chamber music, listening guides, and games. Includes free, downloadable teachers’ lessons and guides.
  • Scheherazade Interactive – The symphonic music of Rimsky-Korsakov is set to the story of “The Thousand and One Arabian Nights.” Parents can enjoy this activity using the listening guides on each screen and four music games for kids. Don’t forget to click on the “oil jars” at the bottom of the screen for further learning. Includes free, downloadable teachers’ lessons and guides.
  • Alan Chapman Studio – Take a virtual tour of classical radio station KUSC, 91.5 FM, Los Angeles, with a popular radio host!
  • Family Listening Activity – Enjoy listening to music that imitates the sound of water. Classical pieces have been selected wherein the music sounds like a ship on the sea, a mermaid’s song, a storm, a river, and a fountain. This listen-and-learn exercise comes with simple, helpful text and suggestions that parents – who don’t have any previous experience in music education – can do and enjoy with their children.

This one gets a ClickSchooling® Award for excellence! Enjoy!
