"An ideal way to introduce children to the magic of music--delightful, charming, wonderfully entertaining, beautifully illustrated."--Gerard Schwarz, Music Director, the All-Star Orchestra

Discover what a symphony is. Who Beethoven was. What happens when a conductor takes the podium and faces of the orchestra. And when you should and shouldn't clap.
Here is a unique, interactive introduction to the world of classical music, presenting one of the most famous symphonies ever written, by one the most famous composers who ever lived.

With its 19-button sound panel, you'll hear the different parts and voices of the music--the beginning of Symphony No. 5, the melody, the harmony, the sounds made by a violin, a viola, a cello, a double bass, and more. And you can even sing along.

Note to parents: The secret to raising a child to love and appreciate classical music isn't a secret at all. You just need to listen with your child and be a willing explorer. Talk about what you hear. Marvel at the sounds. Try to identify the instruments--and have fun with it
