PLAYFUL PLAYLIST FOR KIDS

This goes out to all of the parents, teachers and caretakers who’ve had enough of “Old McDonald” and “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”!  Did you know there was Indie Music for kids?!?!  Here are some songs that are fun enough for the kids and cool enough for you.  Some of these bands do kids music full time and others dip their toes every once in a while.  Check it!

2.  “Gotta Be You” by Secret Agent 23 Skidoo

3.  “Sunny Day, Rainy Day, Anytime Band” by Ralph’s World

4.  “The Disappointing Pancake” by Lisa Loeb

  1. Amaryah, thanks for posting this playlist! It’s wonderful! This will be great to play as my students enter the studio for their lessons. I’m always looking for fun music. Have you come across any kid friendly songs of the same quality as the ones in your playlist that have the piano as the primary instrument?

  2. Glad you like it! I plan on posting some more playlists soon. I’ve been compiling a list of good kids music and as I sit here thinking about it, I don’t recall that any are piano-driven. THERE’S a niche market with a gap to fill, huh?! Maybe that’s what I should do! 😉 I’ll definitely be on the lookout for piano kid music for ya!

    I perform at pre-schools, parties, etc and I can tell you that it’s way easier for me to do it from the guitar because I can dance and move around… Maybe that’s why it’s hard to find a piano group…
