The Music
About Tim
For Teachers
Raising academic achievement for grades K-8 through fun educational music.

Welcome!

Our goal is to provide you with the best kid-friendly science/history/filk music site… ever. You can find my blog and any upcoming public appearances on this page. To check out my music, just click above on MUSIC and choose an album. Note that listening online and all downloads are now FREE, since the primary purpose of this site is to serve the students and teachers who do not have a budget for the arts. Of course if you like the music enough to make a donation, that would be fantastic. Teachers, be sure to look at the NOTES for details on which grade level content is addressed by each song.

We are still working very hard to make things better around here, so if you find anything that doesn’t work right or just seems confusing, please click on CONTACT ME above and let me know. Your feedback is our most important tool for improving the site, so thanks!
