By http://youtube.com/digitalartmusic - This is lesson 9 (and 1st lesson of a series of lessons) aiming to provide illustrative hearing of the capacity of modern digital sound recording by incorporating sounds of nature into musical compositions
Try to accomplish a number of simple goals by watching and listening Lesson 9 video of Classical Music ABC School for babies, infants, toddlers and any other age:
1. Follow melodic flow of the composition, performed by Marimba and Digitally sampled woman vocal
2. Note very slow tempo of this background (of a series of lessons) hearing recording. We will use slightly faster tempo in all other lessons, so, you can then compare with your child tempo difference and discuss where and when one or another tempo is more suitable.
3. Note that we keep minimal onscreen activities, and sweetened this series of lessons with a sleeping dog and and participating in a lesson cat
4. Try to remember the tune, and sing it with your child/children
Each task is surely optional and is a lesson-in-itself, come back to watch this video again and advance with your active dedicated music hearing

A lullaby is a soothing song, usually sung to young children before they go to sleep, with the intention of speeding that process. As a result they are often simple and repetitive. Lullabies can be found in every culture and since the ancient period.
Lullabies written by established classical composers are often given the form-name berceuse, which is French for lullaby, or cradle song. The most famous is the present song.
Many Christmas carols are designed as lullabies for the infant Jesus, the most famous of them being Silent Night. Other famous Christmas lullabies include Away in a Manger and Infant Holy, Infant Lowly.

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) was a German composer and pianist, and one of the leading musicians of the Romantic period. Born in Hamburg, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna, Austria, where he was a leader of the musical scene. In his lifetime, Brahms' popularity and influence were considerable; following a comment by the nineteenth-century conductor Hans von Bülow, he is sometimes grouped with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven as one of the Three Bs.
Brahms composed for piano, chamber ensembles, symphony orchestra, and for voice and chorus. A virtuoso pianist, he premiered many of his own works... Brahms strongly preferred writing absolute music that does not refer to an explicit scene or narrative, and he never wrote an opera or a symphonic poem.
Despite his reputation as a serious composer of large, complex musical structures, some of Brahms's most widely known and most commercially successful compositions during his life were small-scale works of popular intent aimed at the thriving contemporary market for domestic music-making... Among the most cherished of these lighter works by Brahms ...the last was written (to a folk text) to celebrate the birth of a son to Brahms's friend Bertha Faber and is universally known as Brahms's Lullaby.
Brahms's Lullaby or Cradle Song is the common name for a number of children's lullabies with similar lyrics and the same melody, the original of which was Johannes Brahms' Wiegenlied: Guten Abend, gute Nacht ("Good evening, good night"), Op. 49, No. 4 (published in 1868). The first verse is taken from a collection of German folk poems called Des Knaben Wunderhorn; the second stanza was written by Georg Scherer (1824--1909) in 1849. The lullaby's melody is one of the most famous and recognizable in the world, used by countless parents to sing their babies to sleep. Join this happy family, and... Have a Good Night!
