The Naxos ‘My First’ album collection is the ideal mini-springboard into a lifelong journey through classical music. Introduce your children to treasures of the repertoire from a variety of edutainment angles – individual volumes focus variously on instruments (piano, violin, the orchestra), composers (Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky) and styles (ballet, lullaby). Purchase them as individual albums, or as a 9-CD boxed set. Some are also available in app format.

All the audio extracts are carefully tailored for younger listeners and include famous tracks as well as unexpected gems. The imaginatively illustrated booklets are full of bite-sized pieces of information to stimulate an interest that will continue to grow in measure with the young readers themselves. These products will open a door to a wonderful world that you and your children can discover together.

It’s the perfect introduction to the orchestra for children aged 4 and above.

The orchestra is the most amazing musical team! Come and explore all the instruments in this stylish sequel to Naxos’s My First Classical Music App.

In this brand new app, there is a very special guide to the orchestra: a little green creature called Tormod. He is a troll who has come from the top of a mountain in Norway to find out about music! Can you help him find his way home while he shows you round the orchestra?

Every instrument has its own page, with a young performer playing a solo. Tormod will show you all these, and sometimes he might even try the instruments himself! He’s only a beginner though...
