Some Recordings of Music for Children

Among the recordings included here are some of the greatest albums for children to play when they learn piano and also some music about children rather than for children. Play your children at least some of these recordings before they start lessons so that they know more about how fantastic and beautiful graded music can be without having their friends' performances as the only point of reference. Follow the titles of the pieces so that the music can be connected to the stories in it.
