Animal Songs for Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers

Song of the Week

Animal Songs for Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers

This week’s blog is a celebration of animal songs! Animal songs for children are prolific because they’re such an easily relatable and intuitively exciting topic.

At the bottom of this page, I linked all the past blogs about animal songs in case you want to revisit some of your favorites from previous collections. This week we are going to focus on exceptionally cute videos of animal songs from different types of The Music Class programs, including our TMC Schools program and TMC Keyboard program. I hope this will help you visualize how your child can continue to learn and grow and love animal songs throughout every stage of their education! Now go sing about all of the animals that are important to your family, whether they are pets, toys, or imaginary friends!


Do You Know What I See? (TMC Schools Preschool Class) 

Notice how all of the children are singing along in this video? This is because they have listened to this song so many times both in the classroom and at home with their families! We know that immersion is the best strategy for learning music, so every family in every TMC program gets the music to take home every session. Please specifically watch the little girl to the right of Ms. Jen enthusiastically acting out every line of the song. She’s amazing!


Riding my Pony (TMC Keyboard Year Two) 

Our TMC Keyboard program teaches children how to play by ear first, think like a musician second, and read music third. All of these things are important, but it really helps children to find themselves creatively and develop their critical listening skills to learn piano in this order! If you are lucky enough to get into Mr. Rob’s Keyboard Two class, each student spends the semester working on an original composition and then records it to create their own personal hit! “Riding My Pony” is Nicholas’s incredibly catchy, incredibly amazing original composition that he wrote in Keyboard Two, and then we added to The Giraffe Collection!! I have watched this video on repeat, and I bet you will too.


Rocking Horse (TMC in Chinese and English) 

This video was filmed for our families in China who use The Music Class to help them learn English! If you speak a second (or third, or fourth!) language at home, singing in both languages is an excellent, easy, and natural way for children to learn! Please feel free to giggle at me struggling to give instructions in Chinese, and also be amazed at how easily some of our English-speaking kids picked up the Chinese animal names!


I Hear the Doggie Singing (Music Class Teachers Getting Silly) 

Here we have our Atlanta TMC teachers embracing their inner child (per usual) and singing to their pets. No one said you can’t enjoy animal songs even as an adult!!
