May you and your children enjoy the wonders of music and all it touches!

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

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.
