Maestro Classics Giveaway!

Children love stories and children love music. What better thing than to combine the two? We love the Maestro Classics CD’s. They are well done, and are a great way to give your children a love for high quality music.

I’ve already told you how much my kids enjoy these CDs. They are a great way to give children a taste for classical music. If your kids are a little older, other tracks on the CD help the child listen for specific instruments, and often give a brief history of the story. Their site also includes some educational lesson plans should you want to go a little deeper with these CDs.

I’m thrilled to tell you that Maestro Classics has offered to give one of my readers a CD of Peter and the Wolf! This title is their most popular title. Your children will love this classic story!

You will want to be sure and follow Maestro Classics on twitter, facebook, and pinterest to keep up with their newest titles and other resources. (Their pinterest board has lots of music education/appreciation resources).

To enter, check out the Maestro Classics website and leave a comment here telling me what titles you think your family would love most.

Optional additional entries (leave a separate comment for each) :

Enter to win a CD for your children, or to give as a gift to a niece, nephew, or grandchild!

  4. I’d say Peter and the Wolf because that’s the one I’m most familiar with and I had that as a record (yes, the vinyl kind – I’m getting old) but in French. The animal one sounds intriguing too! Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. I like you on FB! (And I like you off FB too :-)

  6. I follow you via Google RSS reader!

  7. My girls would probably enjoy Swan Lake and all my kids would like The Tortoise and the Hare. These look like excellent teaching tools. I may have to invest in one or two….or five 😉

  8. I “like” you on Facebook.

  9. I receive your posts via email.

  10. Based on your reommendation, I gave Mike Mulligan and Carnival of the Animals for Christmas gifts. Both gifts were a hit! Personally, I would enjoy Swan Lake but my boys would like Mike Mulligan.

  11. They all sound fun. I think my kids would like any of them.

  12. I follow you on reader.

  13. I like you on FB.

  14. I think we would enjoy Peter and the Wolf, a classic at our home when we were kids, and Lara would love Swan Lake (princess, prince, king, queen, magic, enchantments and the works!!) :)

  15. I think I would like Peter and the Wolf or the Mike Mulligan one. I may have to order one even if I don’t win. :-) Thanks for hosting!

  25. I think we would enjoy any of it! My kids like to listen to books on cd. They often have one playing while they’re playing Legos.

    And thanks for having the link to Maestro Classics open in a new window! :) It bugs me when a giveaway directs you to a website, but it doesn’t open in a new window and you have to find your way back to the giveaway site.

  26. I’m a fb follower!

  27. I would love to have Peter and the Wolf for our family! I also liked Handel’s Water music and the Swan Lake on the website. Even if I don’t win, thanks for introducing me to this company! I have a degree in music education and these look great. Training children to really listen to music will be a tool that will serve them throughout their lives.

  28. Wow! GREAT giveaway Johanna! I think mine would love the Carnival of the Animals – they are animal CRAZY!!! But honestly, they all looks superb!

  29. I already like you on FB!

  32. Would love to have Peter and the Wolf for my kiddos…how could I have forgotten about this classic for their childhood!

  33. Brian and I were just talking about Peter and the Wolf the other day! We really enjoy the music, but do not have a CD of it! I’d love to get Carnival of the Animals and Swan Lake at some point as well!

But I’d want to put up ones like My Name is Handel for the near future. :) I love that there’s a lesson plan with each disc!

    Carnival of Animals! Such a fun set of pieces. :)

  67. I think we would have to start with “My Name is Handel” since we used that music for our wedding ceremony. :-)

  68. Tough choice! I think Peter and the Wolf looks great, but we’d probably also like the Water Music one–that’s one of our favorites to listen to and it would be fun to have a story to go with it!
