Making The Most With Music

Starting your child at a young age appreciating music can open amazing doors of imagination as they travel the road of life. It can be a bit daunting to being though. Where to start? Even at a young age, music can be played in the background at home.As they become older, you can make selections just for them. While in the car or sitting at home you can listen to the music and ask questions "Do you think this is happy music or sad music?" "How does it make you feel?"  "Is it loud or soft?" All these are critical thinking and reasoning.
Now, the big question.... What songs do I pick?
Here are a few of my suggestions and a few to listen to.
You could also sit down and compile a playlist of your own, just have fun with it!

Fast paced exciting songs
Hungarian Rhapsody  (one of my all-time favorites)
Schubert's Military March
Overture From The Marriage Of Figero
1812 Overture
Orpheus In The Underworld 
In The Mood - Glen Miller
Sing Sing Sing -Glen Miller
Oklahoma (Musical)

Waltzing Matilda
Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport
Brown Girl In The Ring (A game children in Jamaica play)

Soft and Peaceful
The Aquarium by Saint Saens (A stupendous piece)
La Cynge (Very well known tune)
