This site is:
 A free, ever-growing musical resource for children and their caregivers;
 A home for Golden Acorn Music's services





  - Songs & Lyrics contains hundreds of songs for children, complete with lyrics, motions, video/audio, and chords.
  Lesson Plans contains plans for each of Golden Acorn Music's partner schools.

Under Resources, you will find:
  - Information for Schools, with information about our music classes.
  - Class Materials, with recommendations for books, instruments, recordings, and more.
  - Music @ Home, with external links to podcasts, online music channels, and websites filled with children's songs and rhymes.
  - Curriculum Goals, with detailed descriptions of our curriculum at all preschool ages.
  - Vocabulary, with an organized list of fundamental musical vocabulary and definitions.






















Every week, we divide our time between several Bay Area preschools so that children can have a regular time for music that is engaging and instructive. Our focus is mainly on singing and rhythm, with additional emphasis on instrumental prowess, movement, and vocabulary.
