Listen to Composers and Instruments
The Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) has created a wonderful music resource for kids. The site includes information on the symphony and tips for learning to play an instrument, but most notable are the listening resources. Students can listen to musical works by famous composers or hear the sounds that different instruments make. There is also a listening section for music theory. After the students have listened and learned, they can try some of the interactive games, too.
