Maestro Classics recordings will teach children and parents how to open their ears and truly listen. Listening is a skill, and learning how to listen will help cultivate a love of music and art which will last a lifetime. Studying classical music will help children succeed in all academic subjects, which is why we provide free curriculum that relates classical music to math, science, geography, history, language and art.

Maestro Classics Stories in Music Series is designed to educate and entertain children and adults alike. Recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, this is the best children's music you will ever hear. Each of the 12 MP3s are done in the style of "Peter and the Wolf" (the most popular piece of children's music ever created) and includes a narrated story to go with the music. Each MP3 includes a special guest performer, educational tracks and the music without narration. Also included with each MP3 is a 24 page PDF with beautiful illustrations and educational puzzles & games. We have been producing classical music for kids and families since 2004 and look forward to creating new stories in music for generations to come.
