While riding in the car, we may listen to music we like with our kids. However, often parents find themselves with a variety of kids songs in the car and stuck in their heads. “Baby Shark,” songs from Moana, Frozen, and many others. These songs are fun, catchy, and important, kids should have an array of ‘kid-music’ to listen to.
However, there are reasons to play many styles of music for your kids. As a matter of fact, you can even make an adventure of exploring new musical styles right along with them. Music is a pretty awesome method for bringing different cultures into your home.
Think about blues or punk or salsa. These music genres have their origins in very different people, places, and eras. Imagine all the things you can explore with just those three genres, different fashion, ideas, historical events, and more!
If you’re not sure how or where to start. I’m here to help! 🙂 I’ll be going through different genres from A-Z with the ABCs of Musical Styles. This will be a series of videos that will focus on both a letter of the alphabet and a music genre that starts with that letter. We will dive right into the who, what, when, and why as well as how does the music sound.
Check out the first video, ‘A is for ALTERNATIVE ROCK Pt. 1’ below and follow on Facebook or Instagram (@musicallytrained) as we go through each genre and explore in a way that is fun and accessible for the whole family.
