Inspired and wildly imaginative, Beethoven's Wig songs are zany, stick-in-your-head lyrics set to masterpieces by great composers. The lyrics are filled with fact and fancy about the composers and their music opening a door to serious music that's fun. Each piece is carefully arranged for piano so that it’s fun to play and sing along!


"Classical music was never supposed to be this much fun. Was it?"

- Baltimore Sun


"Instrumental music tends not to charm children...and a classical piece like Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. Not a good bet. But what if that work had words?"  

- New York Times

"The songs are funny... The lyrics are hummable mnemonics, each imparting information about the work or the composer."

- Washington Post

"An irreverent, witty approach to music appreciation... a laugh out loud that pretty much guarantees listeners will forevermore recognize the classics."

-Los Angeles Times
