”So far we have used four Maestro CDs. My five children, ages 10-new, have run around playing Peter and the wolf, listening for when their part is up, they've waltzed to the sugar plum fairies and marched with the soldiers. Maestro CDs have made music study fun and delightful! My kids want to listen outside of school time. I highly recommend!”

”My family is new to homeschool this year. We pulled our 3rd and 5th grade girls out of public school. I was worried that they would miss out on the musical experience they receive at public school, so I purchased Maestro-Classics.

We are so pleased and happy with this program. I purchased the downloadable program and it was so easy to download onto the computer.
My daughters LOVE the stories and the music. They ask to listen to the different symphonies all the time. I have to turn it off sometimes so they can focus again on their school work! We have enjoyed reading the booklets that go with the music and learning about the composers.
I love that the website has curriculum that accompanies each of the different stories. I had trouble locating this curriculum at first but am so glad I took the time to find it. They give you games and activities and videos that go hand in hand with the music.

We now have a music folder with great information about the stories and symphonies. My daughters love to share what they have learned with everyone they meet. My neighbor kids come over just to listen to the music and find out what we have learned. They really like Casey at Bat!
I would definitely recommend this program to all of my friends. And it is very little work for me to plan and prepare!”

”I have three small children (ages 5, 4, and 2 years).They absolutely love this series with the family favorite being The Sorceror's Apprentice. Yaru, the narrator is phenomenal and the music is beautiful. The children are able to recognize their favorite parts of the score and the corresponding parts of the story when listening to the instrumental track. They are also getting better at recognizing the sounds of the different instruments in the orchestra. This was a great purchase for us. We use it often, particularly on car rides, and we would emphatically recommend it to others.”

”I have a preschooler and a kindergartener. We listen to one disk every morning for a week during breakfast time. Both children have developed an appreciation for the music and occasionally request to listen to it during their free time. The music has also sparked an interest in corresponding children's books and poems. The disks are well-done, informative, and fun. We contacted Maestro-Classics company directly for a request for my order and the customer service was great.”

”These are "fun & easy to dance to," says our daughter! Maestro-Classics is very simple, accessible & user friendly way to introduce the sounds of musical instruments and classical music within story formats. The activity booklets are an easy way to reinforce and discuss what they have heard, and answers are provided on the MC website. The Co-op price was great!”

”I am using Maestro Classics for a homeschool co-op, and we love it! The stories are engaging, and the music is wonderful. I have used some of the activities from Maestro Classics' website as well. The elementary-age students that I teach love it. They are learning about composers, styles of music, and instruments in a fun way.”

”I LOVE the Maestro-Classics CD's! The stories were well-chosen, the music is great and the information is interesting and well presented. I love having something educational for the kids to listen to in the car. And these CD's are entertaining!”

”A fantastic series which introduces children to excellent quality orchestra music. The activity books are a great fun addition. Unfortunately, some of the published links back to the web site are no longer available. I had some problems with the shipping of the materials and delays in receiving them, however Customer service was very prompt and positive. My children and a small group whom I teach have loved these CD's - we have listened to them several times in the car.”

”This series of music CDs is very well done. The music is enjoyable to listen to, and the information provided about the compositions and composers is edifying. I heartily recommend it.”

”We bought 4 titles at a homeschool convention: Swan Lake, Peter and the Wolf, My Name is Handel and Sorcerer's Apprentice. I had hoped for an appreciation of classical music for our 7-year-old 2nd grader, but what we got was so much more. The backstory of the music and composer biography on each disc begat a natural compare and contrast element completely initiated by our daughter (it is amazing how much they recall from one composer to the next). In addition, one day she asked what was going on in 1717 in Russia while playing Legos. I was curious why she is asking: she had been thinking about King George's reign (from Handel), quickly followed by (her) mental math of figuring out how old he was by the given dates. It was then that I realized this is so much more than a musical supplement to our homeschooling curriculum. She requests them played regularly, which we do along with Greathall recordings. At the very least, it makes drive time a joy, at the most, it is creating a musical map of history initiated and navigated by our child. I am looking forward to adding the new titles offered at such great discounts from HBCo-op. Highly recommended.”
