Classical music can be an exciting tool. The Classics for Kids® lesson plans and teaching resources give teachers practical, effective plans and activities that use classical music to help children learn. They are based on National Standards for the Arts and state Academic Content Standards for Music, as well as the Theory of Multiple Intelligences and Orff, Dalcrose, and Kodaly philosophies.

This month, Classics for Kids features George Frederick Handel.
This week's show is About George Frederick Handel
1685 was a very good year for German composers. Within the space of a month, two of the greatest were born: Johann Sebastian Bach, and George Frederick Handel. Handel spent most of his career in England, where he wrote and produced both operas and oratorios.
