I am a HUGE fan of Studio Ghibli animated films, especially those created by Hayao Miyazaki - and his main composer was Joe Hisaishi (aka. Mamoru Fujisawa).  

Here's one of my favorites, from "My Neighbor Totoro" - "Path of The Wind", by Joe Hisaishi

Play-along sheet music, with 'normal' & 'half' speed - also available as full tutorials.

Another favorite, "Merry-Go-Round of Life", by Joe Hisaishi - from "Howl's Moving Castle"

Here's a Beginner Violin Version - that can be slowed down in the video settings.

Here's Play-along Sheet Music for "Always With Me" - from "Spirited Away", by Joe Hisaishi.   

Note: There are 'Hard' & 'Easy' Tutorials vs. 'Hard' & 'Easy' Play-along Sheet Music at each of the respective sites - for this particular tune.  'Hard' is in a different key and MUCH longer - check out the 'Easy' first and decide whether the Sheet Music or Tutorials are more helpful.

How about the AMAZING Studio Ghibli version of John Denver's classic, "Country Roads" - "Whisper of The Heart"?

Violin cover by Julien Ando. 

 

 

More beautiful violin music from Composer Joe Hisaishi & Studio Ghibli! 

One of my favorites - "Castle in The Sky", cover by Julien Ando - with link to his arrangements.

From Disney's Pixar & Universal's DreamWorks, to Studio Ghibli... I think children (of ALL ages) would do just fine learning music from their animated films!
