The curriculum features songs from around the world and a wide variety of rhythms, tonalities, and styles that are beloved not only by children but by their teachers and families as well.
MusiCanopy’s focus on flexibility includes options to teach the program during the school day or as an after-school class. MusiCanopy can be taught by classroom teachers (we promise you can do it!) or by music specialists.
Make Music - that is beloved by children, teachers, and educators.

A huge success!
"MusiCanopy has been a huge success for us. I hear the children singing as I walk down the halls of our school, on the playground, riding on the bus together-everywhere! It's wonderful to hear the teachers on all age levels using the curriculum. We can't wait to get our next song collection!"
—Elisabeth Stewart Graham, School Director
Simple and effective!
"MusiCanopy is simple to use, effective and keeps my pre-k students alert and responsive. The CD's provided are geared to learning the basic fundamentals of music. I would recommend this program to all early childhood educators."
—Linda Bruehl, Teacher
MusiCanopy helped me tremendously!
"The MusiCanopy curriculum has helped me tremendously in teaching music to my young students. The children have enjoyed it so much, and I have received plenty of positive feedback from parents. It is very rewarding to hear from parents how much their children are enjoying music now, and about all the singing they are doing at home--unassisted!"
—Laura June McDuffie, Music Specialist
Our children love it!
"Our children love having MusiCanopy as part of their school day! They love the catchy tunes, the engaging movement activities, and maybe most of all, the fun of making up new words to familiar melodies. I am amazed when I hear a very small child singing a MusiCanopy song on the playground or in the hallway, because I know this music has become a part of who this child is."
—Dr. Ann Brightwell McCord, Director of the Oak Grove Young Children's School
"MusiCanopy is truly an enriching program. It is wonderful to see the parents participate in circle time with their children. Parents and children are singing down the hallway to class each morning. Teachers are excited about introducing new songs with new ways to move to the music. It has been a great success!"
—Kathleen Dixon, Executive Director, First Steps Academy
Great asset of our school!
"I would just like to thank The Music Class for the MusiCanopy program. It has proven to be one of the greatest assets of our school.The children, parents and teachers absolutely love it! The music speaks for itself. It has served as an icebreaker for shy students and has been a sense of comfort for anxious children that are joining our program for the first time. The songs are delightful and easy to learn. Our teachers are finding it very beneficial as well. They are able to tie music into the lesson plan each week and with such a wide variety of songs, we are always able to find one that relates to what we are studying. The teachers have also commented on how helpful and informative the training classes are! After each training class, the teachers are more and more confident and excited to take the music program to the next level. As a Director, I am so appreciative of your professionalism and commitment to ensuring that our school is reaping all of the benefits of the program through training, instrument selections, training manuals, lesson plans and CDs. It has been a wonderful experience working with you!"
