Naxos MusicBox is available in two versions: One for individual subscribers in a home environment to explore on their own or with parents; and one more extensive site for teachers to use in the classroom. Many teachers in primary schools – whether music specialists or not – welcome resources to help them. In Naxos Musicbox they have lesson plans and imaginative, tailor-made activities to support their teaching. Interactive and classroom activities have been written by qualified music teachers. There are activities for younger children (4-6) based around songs, and for older children (6-12), based around the sections presented on the homepage. Children are often encouraged to listen our for particular details in pieces of music, which allows them to connect more immediately with larger or more complicated classical works.
