Classical music is something that I love. It’s something that is played in our house to create a relaxing atmosphere and also something that we listen to learn about. Maestro Classics has created some fabulous tools for parents and children to use when learning more about music together including their homeschool music curriculum guide.

We personally own several of the Maestro Classics cds and recently purchased Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. Today I am so excited to share a giveaway of the Classic Composer Set from Maestro Classics!

Included in this 4 cd bundle are Peter and the Wolf, The Story of Swan Lake, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and My Name is Handel: The Story of Handel’s Water Music. Here’s a little more about each cd:

Peter and the Wolf:
Peter and the Wolf: A young boy named Peter disobeys his grandfather and climbs over the garden wall. When he encounters a wolf, with quick thinking and the help of his friends – a bird, a duck and a cat – Peter captures the wolf and it is taken to the zoo.  A 24-page activity book included with the CD.  Ages 4+ and families. 


The Story of Swan Lake:

Swan Lake: Tchaikovsky’s greatest ballet score, is the tale of a prince who falls in love with a beautiful princess. The princess, however, has been turned into a swan by an evil magician, and only the prince’s love can break the spell. This narrated version of the classic tale for children is sure to delight all who love ballet and enchanting storytelling. A 24-page activity book included with the CD contains a biography of Tchaikovsky, information on acoustic and electric guitars, sheet music and words for a sing-along song, explanation of major and minor keys, puzzles and more.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice:

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice: The lazy apprentice, confident that he can use his master’s spell to do his chores, chants the magic spell and takes a nap. As the water swirls around the workshop getting ever higher, the apprentice awakens, only to discover that he does not know the spell to stop the brooms! A thrilling narration accompanies Paul Dukas’ dramatic musical score. Includes a 24 page activity book.

My Name is Handel: The Story of Water Music: Name is Handel: When Handel, the brilliant young German composer living in London, needed to get back into the king’s good graces, he had a brilliant idea.He composed a suite of dances, hired a boat and 50 musicians, and headed down the River Thames to surprise King George I. The music became known as "Water Music," one of Handel’s best-loved compositions.
