What Are We Using For Music in Kindergarten: Themes to Remember Vol 1

 

Well I was super excited when I got the postal office slip to go pick up my package. And there it was, our new Themes To Remember, Volume 1 book and cd.

What is Themes to Remember?

Themes To Remember, Volume 1 is a 124 page hard bound book. The product is designed to help anyone {particularly children) to recognize 40 classical music themes, to know the name of the composer of each theme, and to be knowledgeable about and love classical music. It is a light-hearted, fully illustrated book that includes portrait sketches of the 24 composers and definitions of musical terms. Piano, a quiet little cat, and Forte, a rather noisy little dog, will accompany you through the pages of Themes To Remember. The book also includes “good listening” suggestions for each of the four classical music periods covered in the book. -Amazon

I quickly uploaded it into my iPhone so Wesley and I could listen to it in the car.
The music seemed to catch his attention, but I personally found the lyrics hard to understand at first. But over time we are getting accustomed to them, and they are catchy. I hope this will help him appreciate classical music more than I did as a kid.
One thing that I noticed that everyone said would happen. I never had to force him to listen to it. It’s like he instantly can tell good quality music.
