We started to have so many songs that were suitable for younger learners that we made this separate section only for those songs.
Some of these songs are suitable for the very youngest of learners, i.e. three or four years of age. And the suitability of the songs goes up to early teens.
If you have any ideas for improvement to this part of the site or to send in song-based lesson plans, don't hesitate to contact us.
