homeschooling with background music

Today we started homeshooling for the 2009 school year. We still haven't recieved our ebay purchase curriculum *gulp* so I ended up having to pick up a few workbooks from Barnes and Nobles to fill in the gaps. They are inexpensive, child-size and bright colored. o they'll do in a pinch.

"Flash Skills are colorful mini-workbooks designed to focus on specific skills necessary to master math and reading. Eye-catching artwork and full-color stickers motivate, reward, and reinforce learning." - Barnes and Nobles

The boys were restless today so I went to switch on my old standby. - light classical. But since we do not have tv channels anymore we didn't have background music! So I did an Internet search and came up with this nifty site.:
Classical Webcast
Classical music stations from all over the world.

Because as we all know:

"Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak." William Congreve

"Music has charms to soothe a savage breast," spoken by Almeria in Act I, Scene 1. (The word "breast" is often misquoted as "beast".)

Thanks to WikiAnswers I won't be misquoting that anymore!
