The intelligent and endearing series celebrates classical music by presenting it in a way that is relevant to young, contemporary music lovers. Lessons about classical pieces and musicians are brief and to the point but offer tidbits of music education that are easy to understand. Much of what is taught is also applied to the kids' rap and hip-hop performances, demonstrating the connection between the two genres of music. Although the English-dubbed version of the show lacks the original voices of Daniel Barenboim and popular French hip-hop artist Akhenaton, Max & Maestro is still charming and fun. Best of all, it successfully reminds us that music is a universal language, and many different kinds can be appreciated by all walks of life.
