This course has been designed to help parents and families make music with their children at home. If your school is signed up to DabbledooMusic contact them to access the parents content for free.

  • DabbledooMusic radio shows for family listening
  • Access to our sing-along folk and pop songs
  • Learn about well known bands and musicians through our artist profile section
  • Interactive resources for making music with any instruments
  • Spotify playlists for all the family
  • Access to specific courses such as Irish music and a guitar special

With this course, you and your child will get to choose what content you're interested in trying out at home rather than having set lessons to be covered as a child would do in school.

To accompany this course we also have a resource page for parents called 'Music Making for Kids' which provides a guide to ideas and resource for making music in your home.
