Classics for Kids

At KCME, we are delighted to showcase Classics For Kids every Sunday at 6:00PM.

Classics for Kids is designed to introduce children to classical music. According to the Classics for Kids creators, “Music not only has the power to stimulate the mind, enrich the heart and soothe the soul; it can help children to think more creatively, develop craftsmanship and discipline and learn the value of excellence.”

Check back here each month to learn more about the Classics for Kids “Composer of the Month.” More information, music, resources, and games can be found on the Classics for Kids website.

Composer of the Month-Franz Liszt: While Franz Liszt was a composer, conductor, critic and teacher, he was best known as a pianist. When Liszt walked onto the stage, he took over the hall, amazing the audience with his incredible technique and his awesome presence. He was a true showman and the man who invented the solo recital. As a composer, Liszt, of course, wrote music primarily for the piano. Many of his pieces are tremendously difficult and few pianists can perform them properly. Liszt also wrote music criticism and was known as a conductor and teacher who trained many of the performers of his time in his tradition. Because of his ego and attitude, Liszt was always a controversial figure. However, he is recognized as one of the dominant personalities of 19th century Romantic music. Listen and learn more about Franz Liszt and his “Hungarian Rhapsody” on the Classics for Kids Website. Check out some great activities linked here!
