Nursery rhymes are a wonderful way to introduce your child to music.  These short, repetitive songs are ideal for babies and young kids to latch onto, and before you know it, they will be singing along.

Music is a language and should be introduced to children as soon as they are born, if not before!  The wider the variety of music a child listens to in these early years, the more receptive they will be to learning a musical instrument when they are older.  As we mentioned on the homepage, music is extremely important in a child’s education, and can really help with their school career.

These free videos present each song in a fun and attractive way, helping parents to re-learn the tunes alongside their children.  A variety of films and animations, the videos are a great resource, particularly for rainy days at home, or on long car journeys.  The lyrics are presented alongside each video and further activities and games are suggested to really ingrain the songs. Each song has printable sheet music and lyrics illustrated with a character to colour.
