Facing the Music

– Clever and comical classical CD

Beethoven\'s Wig When it comes to classical music, you may not always know Beethoven from Bach, or Schubert from Chopin. So how will you ensure that Junior’s musical appreciation is a little more advanced?

Put on Beethoven’s Wig.

A huge hit in the US, the first track alone will have you laughing out loud. To the dramatic crescendo of his Fifth Symphony, you’ll learn that Beethoven’s wig is very big. (In fact, his mother called. She said he’d look better bald.)

Nominated for three Grammy awards, Beethoven’s Wig combines the world’s most famous classical melodies with stick-in-your-head lyrics to provide an exhilarating and hilarious way to learn.

And, perhaps most importantly, having it on in the car won’t drive you off the edge.

Now that’s music to your ears.

Beethoven\'s Wig CDWhat Moi says:
Did you hear the one Fur Elise, about Maurice who came from Greece? With a valise.

Beethoven’s Wig (£14.99) is only available as an import on Amazon (it’s worth the expense. Or add it to your shopping list if you are travelling to the US soon).

Then it’s time to let Ella (Fitzgerald) elevate Old McDonald. Get a little fruity with Yes, We Have No Bananas. Or let the fox into the coop and see the feather’s fly with Ain’t Nobody Here But Us Chickens.

With a great selection of fun favourites and offbeat originals, Jazz for Kids is a great introduction to jazz and swing, for the whole family.

And with some of the era’s most legendary performers, it will go some way to jazzing up your tot’s musical repertoire.
