Classical Music for Kids: Spotify Playlist

Do you want to expose your children to Classical Music? Look no further than this Spotify Playlist full of my kids' favourite classical pieces. We love to listen in the car, waving our conducting arms madly!

Why expose our children to different musical genres? 

- It helps brain development 

- Kids get to choose what THEY like, which helps them build their sense of identity 

- Kids are exposed to different instruments and may be inspired to try them  

- Kids are less likely to think of a certain genre as "weird" or "different" if they've heard it from a young age 

- It opens their minds to different kinds of creative expression 

- If one day they’re inspired to create their own songs, they will have a variety of influences
