Cliburn Kids is a (growing!) collection of wonderfully entertaining 7- to 10-minute videos designed to introduce children to the fun of classical music. How does music paint pictures, tell stories, express feelings? Host Buddy Bray and guest artists use individual pieces to explore topics that delve into the way music is organized and structured, counting and rhythm, expressive elements, and sometimes just lighthearted enjoyment!Programs are geared towards elementary-aged children, and activities are provided for each episode that are perfect for in-classroom or at-home studies.Cliburn in the Classroom programs written by Dr. John Feierabend and Buddy Bray.
