Pop Songs for Children

A selection of classic and modern pop songs suitable for children

A great way to get the children in your class to buy-in to your music lessons is to provide them with examples of music that they know. Pop music is a simple way to do this. From doing workshops in primary schools all over Ireland, we've noticed that children have a surprisingly wide range of knowledge when it comes to pop music, whether it be from today's charts or back in time to the 70s and 80s.

Videos of pop music often feature dance moves, costumes and storytelling. They can be a useful platform to begin discussion on what instruments were used or try to figure out what decade the song is from based on hairstyles and fashion!
