The first thing you need to do when introducing your children to classical music is to make them interested in it. We all know how first impressions last. You can start small by letting them watch cartoons having musical background in it. In their spare time you may play classical music which they can dance with. One interesting piece you can try is “In the Hall of the Mountain King” by Camille Saint-Saens.
