Classical Kids is an established leader in family edutainment, with more than two million recordings and 200,000 home videos sold. Producer Susan Hammond’s award-winning series have revolutionized the way children, parents and educators approach classical music. All Classical Kids recordings feature a unique combination of music, history and dramatic storytelling to engage the imagination and present Classical composers as heroes for children. While all the facts about the period are true, a fictional child leads young listeners into the composer's world.
If you are learning about classical composers through the Classical Kids series and have been assigned home study, or if you just want to be entertained with stories and music from another era, the Classical Kids Student Edition App is for you. The Student Edition Classical Kids App includes quiz questions for each Classical Kids story, resources to learn about the most popular classical composers, a metronome tool to assist with music practice, and an audio recorder to record your performances. Within the app you can purchase any of the 7 individual Classical Kids 45 minute fully illustrated musical stories along with read along scripts.

Great Music, Good Stories, Awful Illustrations
This audio series introducing kids to classical music has been around awhile. I like the idea of drawing kids into the music by way of a story. The stories--while a bit on the melodramatic side at times--do just that. My rating is not so much for the original series, but for this app which integrates illustrations with the audio. But the drawings are...yikes. Not good. At all. I don't want to be mean about someone's best drawing effort here, but they do not at all enhance the story, in my opinion. I'm just thankful that the developer offered a preview. The only reason I might purchase the full version of the stories is that it's probably cheaper than buying the CDs.
I love these stories-have them on CD and was thrilled to find this app!!!!
