Chesky Records Kids is committed to helping children develop their creativity and expand their cultural horizons. Classical Cats is a wonderful way for young children to learn about the orchestra. The recording presents a playful story with beautiful classical music by composers from Tchaikovsky to Bach.

Splendid metaphors are used to teach your child about the four main sections of the orchestra: the strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion. This story is a great learning tool in many ways. Not only will your child learn about the orchestra, but perhaps it will serve as a catalyst for your child to develop his/her own musical talents.

Reviews
