Easy. To quote a commercial slogan, "Just do it." One of the best ways to bring classical music to your children is to simply make it a part of their world. Listen in the car or during dinnertime. Play a symphony during playtime.
Classical music appreciation is not unlike reading. If children grow up in a home where they see adults are reading and where books are available, chances are they will be strong readers. The same goes for classical music as well.
If you wish to really explore classical music along with your children (or students), you might want to pursue a music study. Music study is a teaching method favored by Charlotte Mason, a 19th century British educator. Here is a decent introductory page about classical music study.
Whether you are a parent, teacher, or home schooler- music study can be a very enriching part of a child's education. Here are some resources...
- Tips and Advice on introducing children to classical music from the "Classics for Kids" website
