A school resource has also been developed to help teachers build classical music into lesson plans.

Barbie at the Symphony is aimed at children as young as three. It will feature a film with a live orchestra presentation of six of the Barbie Princess CGI movies, including Barbie as the Island Princess.

The tour will visit Liverpool on December 27th, Glasgow on December 28th. The tour will then head to the London Barbican for January 2nd, Manchester on January 4th and end in Birmingham on January 5th. Tickets will cost £15.

Myleene Klass said classical music plays a massive role in her life.

“I think that it’s really important for children to be immersed in music at a very young age such as learning to play an instrument or eventually joining an orchestra.Not only has research shown that it can be really beneficial to a child’s development, it’s also loads of fun and a good way to make friends.These Barbie initiatives are a great way to encourage more children and families to get involved!”

Barbie as the Island Princess will be available from October 22. It features nine songs and tells the story of Princess Rosella, who possesses the magical ability to talk with animals.
