CDs are great

My daughter (4 years old) really loves the music and stories. I was a little disappointed with the activity books. They are ok, especially for younger kids, but I guess I was expecting more.

My 9yo daughter has really enjoyed these CDs. The combination of music, story, explanation, & instruction is a good mix. They are of good quality, enjoyable to listen to, as well as informative. These have been a wonderful tool to learn more about music & instruments as we drive around to the other various events of our day. We pop in a CD and learn while we drive :)! Perfect! I recommend them.
My only complaint was that they did not appear to come with the activity books, as advertised, but upon further inspection, I realized there is a small pamphlet within each CD case, which does contain a few activities related to the CD information. That was a little disappointing, but the CD are wonderful & worth it anyway.

In our media driven world it is sometimes difficult to find something that captures the attention with a desire to know more in the minds of my kids. These CD's are wonderful at doing both. My kids enjoy listening (mostly in the car) and knowing more about the music along with the composers. What a treat it is to hear a piece we have just "studied" in a stores piped in music, as a radio or television jingle or as a base to contemporary music.

Kids love these

My kids (8 and 7) love these cds! They ask to listen to them over and over. We use them as part of our homeschool curriculum and in the car. All the music and narrations are really great quality and the extra tracks always give great background info and fun little extras. It's a lot to spend at one time but if you look at the price per cd, that makes this set a really great value!

This set of CDs is very much worth the small investment. I have used these in the vehicles, in my homeschooling and even at bedtime. They love the incredible variety of stories and the collection of various music. Well made, fantastic little booklet. If a second set comes out, I will be purchasing!

I have three kids. Can I order additional activity books?
Asked by a Homeschooler on January 4th, 2017
Hi! Each CD includes one activity book. But if you send your receipt to [email protected], we'll send you high resolution PDFs of each booklet which you may print out in a larger size and use with more than one child. Thanks for the great question!
Answered by MaestroClassics on January 4th, 2017
Does cd includes only tale tracks, or it has only music tracks as well?
Asked on September 10th, 2016
All CDs have the story with the music and some of the CDs contain the music only in addition to the main story in music track.
Please let me know if you have any more questions and thanks for your interest in Maestro Classics!

Hi, what age group would your music program work for?
Asked by a Homeschooler on July 29th, 2016
Hi! Our program works well with children of all ages. Five -year-olds will enjoy The Tortoise and the Hare & Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel CDs while children in their early to mid teens will prefer "The Soldier's Tale" by Igor Stravinsky & "Merry Pranks of Master Till" by Richard Strauss. Our other titles, such as "Peter and the Wolf" & "Carnival of the Animals" are great for children (and adults!) of all ages. We hear routinely from parents that they enjoy the high quality production of our recordings and also learn something from the educational tracks. If you would like additional information please give Maestro Classics a call toll free at (888) 540-2811. Thanks so much for your question and have a great day!
