Home - Teaching Children Music


Since 2010, Teaching Children Music has been helping parents and teachers provide an an engaging music environment for children.

We have many videos for online learning, but the real magic happens off-screen through colorful, interactive play.
Our materials will guide you as your children learn to:
  • Read music and create their own melodies.
  • Develop their musical ear.
  • Understand and play with rhythm.
  • Sing beautiful, nearly forgotten art songs written for children.
  • Learn to play an instrument.
  • Comprehend music theory.

โ€‹Dear Parents and Music Teachers,

I began this website when I noticed that there are dozens of elementary reading and math websites to aid in teaching the fundamentals to children, but relatively few for music.  I also saw that many of the existing music websites were cost prohibitive.

I noticed in education forums that for many, the prospect of teaching their child music was frightening because these parents never learned the basics of music themselves.  Music education was getting left behind because they didn't even know where to start.

Seeing these problems ignited a spark to pursue and combine my passion for music and childhood education, and Teaching Children Music was born.  Thank you for joining us!

You don't have to be a musician to be a great music teacher.

What you need are solid tools, a basic knowledge on how they work, and a willingness to apply them.  It's time for a little music boot camp. 
Are you ready?
