Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Educational Entertainment: Classical Music for Families
Discover the new classical music CD series that integrates great classical music with the London Philharmonic Orchestra with classic stories. Excellent for music appreciation – learn about what to listen for in the music, learn some new songs, learn about composers. Great cultural education both at home and in the car.  High quality and always fun.

Morals and Music
Listening to music increases creativity, develops listening skills, and promotes a lifelong love of music. Discover how this new series of CDs with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and narrator also provides opportunities to discuss the importance of core values of love, loyalty, friendship and diligence as well as the dangers of pride, taking shortcuts, and not listening to parents.

Musical Adventure: A New Series of CDs to Educate And Entertain the Entire Family
Have you often wished that your curriculum included more music? Meet Bonnie Ward Simon, executive producer and creator of the award-winning Maestro Classics CD series. She will give you a musical tour of these CDs featuring the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Humor in Music: Can Classical Music be Funny?
Many people think that classical music has to be serious, but great composers have often had great senses of humor. Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals with the witty poems of Ogden Nash, the latest CD in Maestro Classics’ Stories in Music series, is an excellent child-appropriate example. Discover how composers find humor in the unexpected, just as authors do. Haydn’s Surprise Symphony and Mozart’s comic operas had everyone laughing. Bonnie Ward Simon, creator of Maestro Classics CDs for Families talks about how "good" music can also be fun.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Bonnie Simon and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
