Yes, a hearty hello to all visiting for the first time. You have come to a very special where you can acquire knowledge that will amaze yourself, as well as your friends, a place to learn and have fun, and a place where you can gain pleasure and satisfaction that will last all your life. How old do you to be to have for all this...well we humbly estimate the range to be from 9 to 90.  So, in short, the Classical Music Project is a course of study for people of all ages that provides them with interesting information about forty of the greatest classical music composers in history, and empowers them to identify 109 of these men's most familiar works. Phew, quite a feat!!! Don't take our word for it, listen to some samples on the jukebox below. There are 5 there out of the 109...all of equal quality and familiarity.

BTW, we have even included some opera in the PROJECT. Say you don't like opera...hmm, let's this video from YouTube and decide...Click on little guy coming out to perform Paul Potts: YouTube.  NOTE: Same thing goes for this video to run. You must meet the 6 criteria above to view it.

Finally...use the HomeBase menu above to guide you through the Classical Music Project. Take about an hour in doing so. You will see a blue animated arrow above telling you where to start. Read carefully all the blue backgrounded boxes along the top of the HomeBase menu to learn about the PROJECT in detail, then go to the maroon box on the second row of the menu that specifically pertains to you; such as, 6. Teacher, if a teacher, 8. Parents, if a parent, etc.  If you intend to take part in the Project, the red box, 5. Course of Study/The StageHouse, is where you will be spending all your time. We hope you have as much fun taking part in this endeavor as we have in creating it...
                                   Yours truly.

**Important**: If you don't have a cable or DSL internet connection, you will have slow response times when you do various activities on this site. However, Internet Explorer will  store the web pages you visit in its cache, and the next time you do the activities, you will get much faster response time. Otherwise, our only suggestion is to go to your library"...computers there invariably have cable connections.  Just remember to set monitor to 1024 x 768 or higher...right click on blank part of desktop screen, go to "settings" and move slider to 1024 x 768.

Also please note: This site will simply not run using Mac computers because Microsoft Activx is an indispensable part of the controls found on many the purple ones above, and such will not run on MACS or any non-Microsoft based browser for that Firefox or Opera. Don't buy the PROJECT, therefore if you have a MAC, or can't use Internet Explorer, or one of its cousins that uses its engine...our favorite of these being Maxthon here to download...running with the Vista skin...just stunning.
