Classical History for Children
Now it is easy to introduce your younger children to the fascinating history of classical music with the Children's Classical Composers series. Eight of the most familiar classical composers are featured in this timeless series written especially for children.

Easy To Read Composer Biographies
Nearly eighty years ago, the author, Opal Wheeler, was working with children of all ages, using music not only as a study, but as a therapy. While lecturing on music at universities, she saw the need for child friendly books on the lives of composers. Based on the material she collected firsthand at the birthplaces of composers, she wrote what today is a foundational series of easy to read composer biographies, the Children's Classical Composers series.

Read by children around the world
Each title in the Children's Classical Composers series gives an overview of a composer, with special emphasis placed on that composer's childhood. Add to that the quaint black and white illustrations and you will see why many of these books have been translated into more than half a dozen languages and are read by children around the world.

Snippets of the composers's music
The large texts of the Children's Classical Composers books are refreshingly wholesome, yet accurate. They even contain selections of the composer's works so that you or your children might play snippets of the composer's music. When necessary, musical terms are explained in a way your children can understand.
