One aspect of being creative is exploring and learning to enjoy music.
Last week I shared with you the music of Hap Palmer.
This week I wanted to share with you a creative way to introduce pre schoolers to classical music.
“Beethoven’s Wig” by Richard Perlmutter is a series of sing along symphonies that uses humor, instruments and lyrics to engage children while introducing them to classical music.
Beep Beep Beep, Chap in a Cap, and Bull in a China Shop will have you all laughing and giggling as you open up a new avenue of creativity.
Beethoven’s Wig uses different instruments from the familiar to the unusual! You get one version of the symphony with silly lyrics that actually reflect some aspect of what the original symphony is trying to convey, and then you get the traditional instrumental version of the symphony.
This wonderful series will instill a love of classical music for a lifetime.
The CD booklet also includes lyrics, trivia questions, and activities.
There are 4 books in this series and you can buy them at Amazon.com
