Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" on Classical Violin...of course!
SMMART MUSIC:  Top 10 Classical Composers

I am not great at this, but when I remember, I try to help my girls recognize the composers to famous classical pieces.  For example, did you know that Disney did not just conjure up the music to "I Know You" in their film "Sleeping Beauty"?  Actually, Tchaikovsky composed the work...Disney just added the lyrics. 
What about the traditional "Wedding March"?...Wilhelm Richard Wagner.

These are the fun facts that will help your little one appreciate and recognize the GREAT composers!

Everyone has their list, I suppose...but I really LOVE this site!  This is a suggested "beginners" list of the Top 10 Classical Compsers with whom to be familiar.

The beauty of this site is that not only do they list out the names of their Top 10 picks, but beside each composer's name is a PLAY button...and a music player pops up to play some of the composer's most recognized works. 

 I'm tellin' you, this is a gem of a site!
