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.

Written, performed and produced by Lee Rosevere, THE AMBIENT BABY is designed to capture the interest of the child, and then slowly soothe it to sleep. This album has been tested with babies and adults with positive, sleepy results.
THE AMBIENT BABY is all original material designed specifically for infants from birth to about two years of age. Little ones are engaged early on by rhythmic sounds at the start. The sounds then weave into a gentle and soothing environment to help babies fall asleep.
Consistent sounds work as white noise to mask household noises such as creaking floors, appliances, outside noise, and traffic. Ambient environments, like the selections created here by Lee Rosevere, often help light sleepers and infants sleep drift off into sleep.
