Wig: Sing Along Symphonies
Review by: Yvonne
I received my copy of ďBeethovenís WigĒ to review, I must admit that
I was in no way interested in classical music and wondered just how the
children would react to this CD. I was totally taken by surprise when I
first played the music for the children and myself to hear! This is truly
a great way to introduce classical music to children of all ages. The c.d.
contains 22 songs, of which the first 11 are sing along songs and the
remaining 11 are Orchestral Performances. The reason I like this CD is the
fact that the words to the sing along songs introduce each piece while at
the same time they teach the listener about the composers of the music.
This CD is a different, new approach to classical music, introduced in a
way that is enjoyable and yet educational at the same time. I found this
CD to be resourceful and enjoyable. The children took to it at once and
were dancing and singing along in no time at all! The orchestral
performances, the last 11 songs were very relaxing and enjoyable as well.
If I had never been given this recording, I can honestly say that I would
not have listened to or played classical music in my home. Iím so
thrilled that my children have the opportunity to hear this style of
music, in a way that subtly teaches them about the composers, and their
masterpieces. I believe this recording to be a valuable addition to any
Wig is also accompanied with a booklet containing the words to each song
as well as activities to try while listening to the songs.
am grateful to have been given the opportunity to include this to our
music library, and Iím sure all children will like dancing to these
masterpieces! I recommend it for children of all ages and for people like
myself who probably have no previous interest in classical music. It has
changed my views on the world of classical music as Iím sure it will
change your views as well! Great work on this CD!
