Tiny Tracks offer child-friendly and relaxing instrumental cover versions of popular songs.
The compositions have been arranged in a lullaby style. The familiar melodies are maintained but with a soothing instrumental in place of the original song.
Choose cover versions of your - or your child's - favourite artists including;
- The Wiggles
- One Direction
Scroll down for track lists for each artist and please choose your preference from the drop-down menu.
There are many pieces of instrumental music available, but the 'cover version' format is unique because;
- The covers of child-friendly songs, such as those by The Wiggles and the Christmas Favourites, can bring a smile to a child's face and promote a positive atmosphere without encouraging intense eruptions of energy. The songs are familiar, but the tone is soothing, so the child can happily hear a favourite tune but in a relaxing context.
- The versions of pop artists - such as One Direction or Adele - can be the perfect compromise with a mixed-age range of classmates or siblings. Imagine the drive home from school with a 10 year old and a 5 year old. The 10 year old might like the poppy, catchy songs of One Direction but the younger child might be needing a restful drive on the way home. Tiny Tracks provides the perfect, harmonious solution; the older child gets to enjoy the melody of his/her favourite songs while the younger child can relax to the lullabies.
- The covers of mainstream music are also great sanity-savers for parents and teachers of pre-schoolers. Children love listening to music but an adult can start to feel slightly overwhelmed by endless repetitions of Playschool. Tiny Tracks comes to the rescue - the child can still dance along but the adult can hear his/her favourite Adele track playing (and can sing along to the instrumental backing!).
In a Montessori classroom instrumentals, such as the Tiny Tracks, can be the perfect accompaniment to movement experiences such as 'Walking the Line' or Yoga.
