The Music Box

The Music Box

Music boxes were invented to make music small enough to fit in your pocket, just like this podcast. With a tap you'll be carried into classrooms, across the city, and out into the field where we ask what is music and how do we make it. We're taking classical music out of the box and giving you the inspiration and tools to compose your stories into music. The Music Box is complete with ready-to-use activities integrating core grade-level standards.
