Halloween is here and what better way to set the scary scene than to play scary music. Many classical and orchestral pieces evoke feelings of creepiness and suspense. We’ve put together a playlist of some of our favorites, and here you can read a little about the songs’ histories and how they’ve become familiar spooky themes. Much of this information you can find on Wikipedia if you want to know more. We’ve even put together a playlist (at the end) so that you can play these works in the background of your Halloween party, haunted house or when answering the door for Treat or Treaters.

If your young child is currently taking piano lessons at My Little Conservatory or you’re thinking about signing them up, you may be wondering why small plush toys come with the lesson books. And how do they help teach music? While they may seem cute and cuddly to the kids, each stuffie is sneaking in some valuable lessons and helping to make the music come alive.

The stories of these two stuffies/composers are woven through each level of the course, and your teacher will use them during lessons to help bring their stories to life.
