If you are a music therapist, educator, or parent and HAVEN’T heard of or visited Songs For Teaching, then you have been missing out on one of the best resources for educational children’s songs and materials on the web. I discovered this amazingly comprehensive website less than a week into graduate school, as I was planning music therapy sessions for an assignment. I knew the minute I entered the site that it was a goldmine – there are thousands of songs by hundreds of artists to choose from, not to mention lyrics, lesson ideas, printables and freebies.
Last year I had the opportunity to offer my own Listen & Learn music at Songs For Teaching, and at this point there are 13 albums available for download. So I was absolutely thrilled when Songs For Teaching invited me to write for their brand new blog, which just recently went live. You can find it HERE, and there is also a link to it from the main page.
I will be blogging about many of the same topics you read here at Listen & Learn, though I go a little bit more into depth there about strategies for using music in the classroom. The goal is to spread the message that music is an extremely useful educational tool, and not only that, but it’s fun. Please take the time to visit and let me know what you think!
You can also follow Songs For Teaching on Facebook and Twitter. And while you’re at it, find me at Facebook and Twitter as well!
Great idea. I teach Spanish language and we use lots of Spanish songs. I find students love it and learn fast
Brilliant idea, great blog!
