We know that live music is a great complement to music lessons but sometimes finding the right event can be challenging as not all events are kid-friendly. Why not host a concert in your house? We found some websites that offer live music and it doesn’t matter if your children aren’t sitting still or how you’re dressed. Just watch and enjoy!
National Public Radio: Tiny Desk Concerts
NPR’s revamped music website features live performances that are literally performed near the desk of “All Songs Considered” host Bob Boilen. The performances tend to lean toward independent artists but several genres are represented including world music.
New York Times: In Performance
This is our personal favorite for online viewing of the arts. The performances are brief enough to capture the attention of our youngest musicians and features some of the most prominent artists in classical music and on Broadway. We especially love the close-up shots of the pianists so we can admire their quick finger work.
PBS: Great Performances http://video.pbs.org/program/great-performances/
This famous and long-running television show has an online component. This website offers a diverse offering of the arts from opera to ballet to classical music to Lady Gaga.
Kissin, Demidenko, Wit: Chopin, Piano Concertos on medici.tv.
This site is perfect for the devout classical music fans who wish they could attend every concert. Full-length performances from Carnegie Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall,
Berliner Philharmonie, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, and more are available for viewing.
Registration is required and free but a monthly subscription fee is needed to access the site’s library and to have an ad-free experience,
Music Together: Concert Videos
Music Together is a national organization that offers music enrichment classes for infants to 5-year-olds. Your youngest musicians or soon-to-be-musicians might enjoy the up-tempo beats in this video playlist. Music Together has a knack for selecting songs that young children love and do not drive parents, well, crazy with repetitive beats and lyrics offered in the genre of children’s music.
