Carnegie Hall: Listening Adventures

This website offers 3 interactive programs to help kids learn about music. Designed for kids 6-12 (but fun for the whole family) the activities introduce instruments of the symphony orchestra, classical music and concepts such as musical notation.

When you get to the site you will see a menu of the three programs that include:

  • “The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra” by Benjamin Britten — in this game you and an animated guide collect instruments on an instrument safari. (Note: Read the FAQ on this BEFORE you launch the game to better understand how to play.)
  • Carnegie Hall Animated History — learn all about the symphony hall’s history and some of the renown figures who have performed there.
  • Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 — A clever use of Dvorak’s own comments about his music and life helps kids understand his classic symphony, “From the New World.”

These games take some time to play — so be sure to visit the site when you’re not rushed. :)
