A lively introduction to Mozart's music
Who says classical music has to be stuffy? What could be more delightful (and less stuffy) than a Mozart-era zebra (powdered wig and all) playing the oboe, a mouse playing the violin, or a hippopotamus (in a feathered chapeau) playing the harp?
Mozart's Magic Flute is a lively introduction to Mozart's music and to music in general. It doesn't offer music instruction as such. It won't teach you how to read music or play a musical instrument, but it will help you develop your listening skills. You will learn to identify the four families of musical instruments (woodwind, brass, percussion, and string); recognize specific musical instruments, such as oboes, flutes, and violas; and identify musical patterns. The activities also help develop logic, critical thinking, visual and audio memory, and problem solving skills.
