Online Music Lessons and Games for Kids


Are you looking for online music lessons, games, and other activities which would be suitable for 6-12 year olds? If so, I want to hear from you! I creating a new site to serve this audience and I would love to hear what you want.

I am a musician myself. I started playing violin when I was in the first grade, and I still enjoy playing music today. I don't need to remind you that despite studies showing that learning music improves math grades, schools are cutting music programs left and right.

I have a son of my own now -- and even though he is only 16 months old, he loves music. He sings to himself, he dances, he just loves music. Seeing him reminds me of just how much kids enjoy music -- especially when they participate in making the music.

So, I am starting a new website to help kids have fun making music. Of course, it will also teach import topics like reading music, chord theory, etc. But, I want to introduce those concepts within the framework of having fun and making music.

I would love to hear your ideas and feedback about what you would like to see. Please send me an email, Jeremy Shaw <>, or leave a comment.
