All Ages: Kid-Friendly Music on FMA

A selection of albums from Kazoomzoom, a netlabel for kids.

The FMA's Terms of Use indicate that the intended audience for our archive is anyone 13 or older, but there are tracks on FMA appropriate for listeners of any age. But how to find them??

Lots of music on our site is available for use in noncommercial, educational contexts, so it's no surprise that teachers come looking for music they can use in student projects and for general classroom use. (Psst - if you're an educator with questions, check out our special FAQ, just for you!) But looking for audio that's safe for non-commercial use doesn't always return the most kid-friendly results. 

There's the netlabel for kids, Kazoomzoom, has been with FMA for years, and releases with names like "The Ambient Baby" -- but we wanted to make a better, easier way for parents and teachers to find music they could use.

Our best solution to this was to incorporate a new genre tag, "Kid-friendly," which collects all music that is either by kids, for kids, or both! If you cruise around this page, you'll find all sorts of stuff - songs about pants that try to ride a bike on their own, pirate songs, bouncy chiptunes, and much more! However, some of these songs may have lyrics or themes that are intended for specific ages within the kid-friendly range - so we ask that parents and educators still preview the music before sharing it with a younger audience. 

Are you a parent or educator looking for instrumentals? Try Podington Bear's short & catchy CC BY-NC instrumental treasure trove (and it's safe for use in video!) or the fabulous collection of classical music from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Do you make music for kids and want to add yours to the collection? Get in touch or comment below!
