This series is educational as well as entertaining. The Little Amadeus Mozart series takes kids to a world where music abounds and helps to build an interest in classical music. There are 13 episodes in this series, that are mixed with facts and fiction about Little Amadues Mozart, his family, friends and of course his music.
Although the series is somewhat fictional there is still lots to learn. Kids not only learn about the music of Mozart, they will learn about the piano, woodwind, bass and string instruments, Vienna, the Imperial Court and much, much more! This is music mixed with a bit of history and a whole lotta fun.
One of the best things about this series is that it is much more than a video series. Along with the DVD set you get a computer cd that has coloring pages, activites and lesson plans to go along with each of the 13 episodes. You can also print these right off of the Little Amadeus website, as well as play some great games like conduct an orcestra, identifiy instruments and memory.
The Little Amadeus series is avaiable directly through the series' creators, Naxos. The series is available for $24.99 and includes 13 episodes from Season 1 on 4 DVD's as well as the computer cd taht includes the lesson plans and fun activites for the kids.
We received the Little Amadeus Mozart DVD series free of charge for review purposes only. The opinions expressed here are mine and I was not influenced by the company or the free product.
