Kids love to make noise and unfortunately, most of it is far from musical. Here are eight fabulous CDs that'll get your kids to raise their voices in song ... which is much better than the other ways they raise 'em!
This awesome educational "language-based music" will not only teach your kid to use his words, it'll get him to boogie down too! There are valuable life lessons snuck into the jammin' tunes including taking turns, recognizing feelings, following house rules and more!
Oran Etkin Sto...
This CD by music teacher and bona fide cool cat Oran Etkin features great jazzy-swing music with a little storytelling and music education tossed in. The clarinet and sax on the album are tops and the smooth vocals by Charenee Wade make you feel like you're sitting in a speakeasy in 1920 ... a speakeasy that only serves juice boxes, that is.
This CD has simple, catchy, toe-tappin' tunes that your kid will love singing along to. There's a silly call-and-response song called "Rosie Wrong Rhyme" in which Debbie makes countless rhyming oopsies ("I'm feeling kinda hungry, there's a rumble in my gummy") that your kids will delight in correcting. Hey, better they're correcting her than you!
creator and music teacher Charity knows how to get kids rockin' and rollin'! This CD has the most groovin' version of Row Row Row Your Boat
you'll ever hear. And the coolest thing about this double album? When the kids get zonked out from bouncing off the walls to the party music, you can put on disc two and give 'em some tunes to pass out to.
This CD is filled with rollickin' songs your kid will love dancing and singing along to. It also has cool tidbits of Zydeco music education and will expose your kid to cool new sounds like the rubboard. This Grammy-winning music is plain FUN!
This fun CD from ASCAP Award winning songwriter, Jeff Eisenberg has a perky Broadway-esque sound that's irresistible. The feel-good lyrics will make your kid want to sing and dance along. Standouts are the catchy tunes "Clap, Tap, Snap" and "Pickle Palace" (say that 10 times quickly!).
This CD of tunes from the popular Music Together classes is full of songs kids (and parents) just LOVE. This award-winning collection comes with a book filled with lyrics and music-making activities perfect to pull the inner musician out of any child.
This 3-disc set is hands down the most "sing-along-able" collection out there! To be honest, the CD may drive you a teeny bit bonkers, but it'll all be worth it when you see your kid's smiling face looking up at you as he grooves along to the kid-friendly tunes.
