Christian Music For Kids

Carman. Carman Ministries

Reader Question: Is there Christian Music specifically for kids of different ages?

I don't think that there is anything sweeter than the sound of a little child singing about Jesus. While Sunday school has a great deal to do with our little ones learning the songs, another genre' within Christian music that is especially for kids helps a great deal.

Answer: Yes there is! It's never too early to start our little ones off with music that teaches about Jesus. There are CDs and DVDs available that will soothe infants and be the delight of any toddlers or young child's day. The emergence of the tween culture set up music too. Bands made up of teens and tweens deliver music that their peers will not only love, but learn from.

Christian Music for Kids of All Ages

For Infants shares that playing music while having time with your baby can "brighten his mood, benefit his brain, and boost his language skills."

For Toddlers and Pre-K

The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) reports that "Music and music experiences support the formation of important brain connections that are being established over the first three years of life." According to the report, playing music for your toddler promotes the development of social-emotional skills, physical (motor) skills, thinking (cognitive) skills and language and literacy skills.

For Young Children

Young kids are ready to start learning a little more and DVDs are not only fun and entertaining, they also can help little ones grasp ideas.

For Tweens

The music for youth of the 21st century has even added a more modern flavor with compilation releases of currently popular music from major Christian labels like Integrity Music, Word Music and Fervent Records.

Jump5 was the first band that came out specifically aimed at the pre-teen group. Since they have disbanded, several other groups worked hard to fill the gap at various times.

Other young artists appeal to both kids and young adults and they work very hard to maintain the balance of entertainment and ministry.

For Teens

Teens are usually fully into "regular" music, having graduated from the tunes suitable for the younger crowd. With Christian artists releasing music that covers every genre in the mainstream, there is plenty to choose from regardless of their musical tastes and preferences.
