Active Listening Playlist


Use this playlist as you engage kids with some of the active listening activities in this post.


Babies – Preschool


Our playlist is great to have on in the background as your little one plays. Its different tempos, moods, and instruments will pique their ears and expose them to a variety of different sounds.

  • When a new piece of music comes on, tell them how it makes you feel. For example, “Wow, this music is soft and gentle. It makes me feel calm.”
  • You can help even the littlest ones tap out the tempo of each piece.
  • Older, more verbal, children can tell you a bit about the music they hear – is it loud? Soft? Happy?
