Classical Music in Year 4


Throughout the year so far, we have listened to lots of different types of music in Year 4, and all children have now had the opportunity to learn an instrument, read music and explore sound. Almost every day we have listened to a different composer and lots of children already have their favourites.

However, many children have asked for links to the music we listen to in class (and more music as well), so here is Mr Dunn’s Top 10 list of classical music for children to enjoy at school and at home! Vote for your favourite and give your own recommendations in the comments.

  1. Ludovici Einaudi – Experience

2. Debussy – Clair de Lune

3. George Bizet – Carmen Suite #1 Les Toreadors
