Princess and Dragon Music

We listen to classical music fairly often in our family, the kids usually ask for “music with words”, but today something different occurred.

In the car I turned on the classical station music and L (2.5) immediately requested as usual her favorite song (on a CD which is perpetually in the car). G (4) said, “NO! This is princess music! This is the dragon part!” As the music changed, she interpreted the parts to be sad or happy, or about various other characters such as step-mothers, wolves, princes, princesses, etc. When a new song came on she still explained what was happening in terms of the princess world.

I have a feeling that the girls are going to be more open to listening to the classical station than they have been, and I am a little bit impressed with G’s ability to interpret the music into stories and emotions. Now, if they would only go to sleep for me while M is teaching tonight…
