Music for Kids.

San Francisco Symphony's Kid Site. Parents, if you have not seen this, check it out. Are there any other sites that do a good job introducing music to kids?

Not many - this is wonderful! Forwarded to my five year old. My favourite bit is the harmoniser - where you can choose a "cool jazz harmony" option for Yankee Doodle Dandy. BTW, this is what I love about MeFi - it's IraqFilter and it's HumaneFilter at the same time. Perhaps the two tendencies are, somehow, related?

Great post, Sandeep, thanks.

The New York Philharmonic also has a children's site worth looking at.

I know "its all about the sites" at MeFi, but the experience of going to the symphony and hearing it live should not be overlooked for the kiddies.

While the general musical oveure for most symphonies are a snore-fest, many feature a more easily accesible "pops" format as well. Growing up as a kid we had season tickets to the now-defunct Oakland series which was excellent at attracting (and holding) a younger audience.
