Classical Music For The Kids, What? Why?

No matter if you are a huge fan of classical music or you quickly change the channel as soon as you come across it, classical music has been a staple of civilization for hundreds of years.

You listen to it everyday, you just don’t know your listening to it.

By definition Classical music is art music produced or rooted in the traditions of Western culture, including both religious and secular music. While a more precise term is also used to refer to the period from 1750 to 1820 (the Classical period).

With all that boring stuff out of the way, you may be asking yourself, “How do I listen to classical music everyday?”

Everyday may be a bit of an exaggeration, but if you watch television, movies or video games everyday, you listen to classical music everyday. What many people do not realize is that much of the background music in all of the most popular content are from a classical orchestra.

See if you can guess where the music is from.


If you were able to guess the intro to Modern Warfare, Star Wars Intro, Empire Strikes Back, and Uncharted you would be on fire!

Classical music surrounds us. Once you do realize it, it might change your child’s perspective on classical music.

You might try downloading soundtracks to some current movies and see if your children can recognize the part of the movie it is from.
