Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf is a programmatic work that was written with the intention of introducing children to orchestral instruments. As the children listen to the story, told by a narrator with orchestral accompaniment, they become familiar with 7 interesting characters that are depicted by 7 instruments.
Tell the children the story using the picture story book (retold and illustrated by Ian Beck) available from Take Note Music. This engaging resource brings to life the story prior to the children delving into the Listening Kit activities.
