Maestro Classical ~ A review


I have to be honest with you, in our family we are NOT really into classical music.  It’s not that we can’t stand it or anything.  It’s just we really like to sing along to songs. 

So when i got the opportunity to review a classical music product from Maestro Classical, I thought “hmm, this should be interesting.”

The CD, Peter and the Wolf arrived in very nice packaging.  The cover art, and art throughout the booklet really get to you, in a good way.    We had about a 3 1/2 hour drive ahead of us; I thought what a great way to pass some car time.   We took the CD in the car, and listened to it during the trip.  Everybody loved it.  It was really neat. 

In the beginning the narrator tells you which instrument represents which character.  Next you can listen to a narrated version, then just the music.  After hearing the narrated version, we loved the musical version.  We all really felt into the music.  We were able to feel like it was really telling the story, (without telling the story, ya know). 

Maestro Classical is a great way to get YOU or your children interested in classical music.  Having had this experience, we now want to find some more classical music with a story behind it that we can get to know. 
Maestro Classical has many other titles available. 
  • Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel
  • Casey at the Bat
  • The Sorcerer's Apprentice
  • The Tortoise and the Hare
  • The Story of Swan Lake
  • Juanita the Spanish Lobster

You can hear some samples just by going to their website

The CD’s are $16.98. 
They also have gift sets for $24.99.

Thank you so much for your review of Peter and the Wolf. I am a customer service person at Maestro Classics and want to let you know that we have just launched a brand new website with lots of resources for homeschool parents. I hope you will have a moment to look at it. Also - the current links on the review don't send to the new site, if you would not mind switching them. I think your homeschool friends will appreciate all the new resources.
Thank you,
Annie Dean
