Weekend Websites #58: 12 Music Websites for the Non-Geeks in Your Class

Posted by on July 30, 2011

Every Friday, I’ll send you a wonderful website (or more) that my classes and my parents love. I think you’ll find they’ll be a favorite of your students as they are of mine.

Click image; click a square to create music--lovely!



1st-5th grade


Integrate music into the classroom


My students aren’t always geeks who live and breath tech as I do. Some of them have other hobbies–art, sports, even music. For them, I offer websites that will enhance that experience in ways they hadn'[t imagined. Here’s my list of music websites for elementary school-age students as young as first grade:

  1. Beat Lab
  2. Click the Square; Create Music (one of my favorites)
  3. Music Games
  4. Dallas Symphony Orchestra for Kid
  5. San Francisco Symphony Kids SIte
  6. Jake the Philharmonic Dog
  7. Carnegie Hall
  8. Music with hands
  9. Nashville Symphony
  10. Play Music
  11. Classics for Kids
  12. Classical KUSC

    Really amazing stuff. Every day I never fail to be truly in awe of people who are so computer-savvy that they can create programs like this. Truly fascinating.
