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-
