5.0 out of 5 stars Great teaching resource 29 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I used this CD with years 4 and 6 recently. The information is fascinating and Aled Jones' reading of the information is great.
The children loved listening to this CD each week, making notes on the various composers and over the course of 6 weeks became familiar with the works of these composers and appreciated what they (the composers) had gone through in their lives to create the music we all know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids and their parents 2 Oct 2008
By Steve P
Format:Audio CD
I and my kids aged 10, 14 and 18 all enjoyed this. CD gives you a little background and some excerpts of music on each composer. Interesting for those who know little or nothing about classical music, or who the famous named composers are. More Classical composors continues in a similar theme. Recommended for long car journeys.

5.0 out of 5 stars suitable for adults and children 8 Jun 2011
By Baku
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
my whole family listened to this CD and everyone loved it. It was educational not only for the children but for the growns ups as well. The choice of musical pieces are excellent, musical terms are explained very clearly, right ratio talk/music.
