    This is an awesome idea. I really liked the DSO site. We listened to an interesting audio book "Tubby the Tuba" recently, and this site would be absolutely handy to learn more about orchestra.

    I'm glad to know that musicians will be included in the new art linky. My son has always enjoyed doing name that tune with classical music and playing around on the piano with his dad. I'm not sure where to move on with it from there (I am NOT the musical one in the family!) but at the very least we could do a week where we listen to famous pieces by a particular composer that he is already a bit familiar with. You have my mind working. 🙂

    JC loves Peter and the Wolf. All we did was listen to the music over and over again (at her request) and read the book. We also acted the story out…or rather she did because it was her idea. I still want to do a puppet show with the music in the background. My goal is to do one musician or artist a month and do it month long so she gets familiar with the artist's work. We should try to come up with resources together! I can begin researching if you are interested. Maybe it will cut down some of the work for us?

    JL – I'd love to work together. We just signed out a great little book on Mozart and plan to listen to some of his music next.

    Are Peter and the Wolf and Carnival of Animals the only ones with orchestra instruments and storyline for music appreciation?

    @Tyng – I am not sure. I'd have to look into that.
