We shared classical kids’ fare like Sergei Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf” and Benjamin Britten’s “Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.”

And we featured posts on exploring great music apps for kids, our hosts’ favorite musical memories from childhood and interviews with experts on the importance of music education.

Also, Richard Ray interviewed several people in the Colorado music community about getting children interested in music: singer and vocal teacher Amanda Balistrieri; Colorado Symphony education program director Catherine Beeson; CPR instrument drive founder Steve Blatt; and CPR Digital Producer Brad Turner.

Check out our full slate of web content for Kids Music Week, including an interview music and brain development from the archives of Colorado Matters and CPR News and some fun posts from OpenAir.
