Research has shown the benefits of classical music on the intellectual and creative development of children, but classical music is an essential ingredient in every child's musical and cultural development, too.

If this is your family's first introduction to classical music, congratulations!

You are about to open a wonderful world of music to delight the whole family.

If your children already enjoy classical music or if you love any of our Classical Kids® CDs, you'll recognize these musical highlights in a more extended form.

Each instrumental performance has been carefully chosen by Classical Kids producer Susan Hammond to be enjoyed by the very young and the young at heart.
