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- Antonin Dvorák: Antonin Dvorak was born in a village just north of Prague. At the time, this region was called Bohemia and was part of the Austrian Empire. He was the oldest of nine children. His father was a butcher, and he wanted Antonin to become a butcher, too. Fortunately, an uncle noticed Antonin’s musical talent, and paid for him to take organ lessons. Dvorak grew up with a strong Czech identity and that came out in his music. His Slavonic Dances were so popular that he wrote two sets. The “Slavonic Dance No. 7” is from his first set. You can listen to Dvorak’s Slavonic Dance No. 7 in c minor on the Classics for Kids website.
