An exhibition “Growing with Music” is on show in the Music and Audiovisual Documents Reading Room (room 305) from April 1 to 23.

Internal world of a child differs considerably from the internal world of an adult. That’s why, music for children should be not only clear in its structure and simple to perform, but also have a special range of images that every child understands. The music of “children’s albums” by different composers, as a rule, is dedicated to the things children encounter every day: games, toys, fairy-tales, real people and fictional characters. It is made to tell young musicians about good and justice, broaden their horizons, teach to feel deeply and express emotions.

The exhibition presents the visitors with various sheet music collections published in the course of the last 5 years for children of different ages. There are pieces for bayan and accordion, wind instruments, choirs, as well as many interesting publications for piano. Some collections have CD-ROM-supplements: D. Lybin “Birds in the Fog” – pieces for piano; E. Atrashkevich “Singing Together” – for vocals and choir; A. Bezenson “Adventures of Little Dinos” – piano ensembles, etc.


Theoretical and methodological manuals for development of aural skills in preschool children, performance skills in schoolchildren, solfeggio and music literature teaching, music didactic games organization are presented to help music directors.

Audio documents supplement the exhibition: music for children and music performed by children and children groups.

The opening hours of the exhibition correspond to the library’s opening hours.
Admission is by the library card or by the Social and Cultural Centre ticket.

8 Apr 2021

Take a look at your bookshelf. Closer. What does it remind you of? An uneven row of books of all sizes and colours? Perfectly even row, where everything is arranged exactly in alphabetical order?

Home libraries always look flawless in photographs and in movies – if only it were like this at home! It's time to dust off the spines and learn about ways to tidy up your bookshelves. And to figure out how the National Library is doing it.
