Black Friday Music Deals for Kids 2021

Are you looking for a gift that will last a lifetime?

Wouldn’t it be nice to find a gift that will keep your child’s attention longer than just a few days after your child opens it this Christmas?

Music is the gift that keeps on giving! This year, consider giving your child music lessons – whether learning about the orchestra and composers or learning to sing or play an instrument.

Here are my recommendations of music gifts and courses with special Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday deals.

For Babies to Early Elementary

Next to the woman is a man with short dark hair in a blue shirt with a younger girl with brown hair on his lap and they are playing egg shakers. Behind the is a scree and the words Musik at Home Membership.

Musik at Home Membership

For many years, I taught early childhood music classes, and though I never recorded my classes and put them online, I can offer you the same thing I taught through my friend Kathryn Brunner of Musik at Home.

For your little ones through age 7 (yes, even babies), music classes will enhance every stage of development. You will love singing and playing with your children as Kathryn leads you in fun songs, movement and listening activities. The Musik at Home Membership is a steal at only $24.99 a month or $199 yearly.

With my discount code though (use JUSCLASSICALJOY), you can get a 3-day free trial and your first month for only $5, and this month includes Family Music for Christmas, which celebrates the wonder of the Advent Season with songs that take your family on a journey to Bethlehem.

Or get $50 off the annual subscription using the code JUSCLASSICALANNUAL.

For Elementary / Middle School

The Composer Detective

The Composer Detective is an easy-to-use, all-in-one online music appreciation course, designed to help you lead your children in investigating orchestra instruments, music and composers, where you don’t have to be the expert but can feel confident your children are learning the essentials, you can enjoy music together as a family (and grow your brains!) through short, engaging lessons which can be adapted in length, you and your children are not only learning music but also history, geography, and culture through the lessons and worksheets, and you and your children are being exposed to great performers, conductors and orchestras in a fun and engaging way through curated video performances. This is a year-long course with 10 units but can be used over several years as smaller unit studies on composers.
