Disney Learning Explore Music Library - featuring Mickey, Tangled and Moana #ad #win

Teaching music at home can be challenging. As homeschoolers we try to sing often and we even go to sing at a nursing home once a month. Teaching is different. Getting the kids to project their voice, hold notes and keep tempo can be challenging. Disney Learning has commissioned a series of books -Explore Music / Creative Arts authored  Hal Leonard for the 4 and up crowd that brings music learning to their level by including characters that kids know and love.

In Disney Princess Tangled: It's Better When You Sing It: A Musical Exploration Storybook, we first have a story featuring Rapunzel. Included on each page are tips and excerpts on how to sing. Next Disney Mickey and Friends: Mickey's Found Sounds: A Musical Exploration Storybook is all about instruments. You will find simple instructions to make several types of instruments at home using items you probably already have on hand.


Moana: The Beat of Your Heart - A Musical Exploration Activity Book Princess Moana, who lives in a tropical island paradise, shares her culture with young readers who discover how the natural rhythms of Moana's environment are expressed artistically through hand clapping, body rhythm, and drumming. Kids will develop their sense of inner pulse by playing along with the drums of Motonui on percussion instruments that they themselves craft from household objects. This beautifully illustrated book with online musical enhancements serves as a guide for children to explore beat, rhythm, and the sounds of Motonui's drums through constructive activities and creative play. * additional online resources coming soon
Tangled: It's Better When You Sing It - A Musical Exploration Storybook Graced with the charming familiarity of Tangled-inspired illustrations, this innovative musical exploration storybook integrates thoughtful activities right in the engaging narrative. Rapunzel shows youngsters that everything is better when they sing! Learning about music becomes an exciting adventure with this playful story that encourages children to experience the joy of singing while they discover the qualities of their own unique voice. Along the way, they'll explore concepts like tempo, pitch awareness, proper breathing, careful listening, using music to express feelings, and much more. * additional online resources
Mickey's Found Sounds -A Musical Exploration Storybook
The Main Street Parade has been rained out, but Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy, along with Donald and Daisy Duck and all their friends, form their own parade playing musical instruments they have made from everyday items found around the house. Children will follow simple instructions and share with Mickey and his pals the fun of playing music with instruments they create themselves. This exploration storybook combines music making with imaginative play, following directions to create crafts, and experiencing the sounds of different instruments. *additional online resources 

 Look for Moana: The Beat of Your Heart - A Musical Exploration Activity Book, Tangled: It's Better When You Sing It - A Musical Exploration Storybook, and Mickey's Found Sounds - A Musical Exploration Storybook at fine music and bookstores everywhere or by visiting

I really love these books. My 6 year old isn't always thrilled to sit and read. He is a normal boy who wants to go, go, go. However when I pull out a book with a character he loves (like Mickey or Moana) his interest peaks. He wants to know what is happening on the pages. He also loves crafts and the Mickey book was right up his alley for that! Making instruments is always a fun time.
