You can choose to burn your free kids music in MP3 format or in Audio format, such as .wav. If you choose an MP3 format, you may have difficulty playing the CDs in any player that does not come with MP3 capabilities. However, if you do have a player that is compatible with the MP3 format, you can fit hundreds of songs on one CD. If you donít have an MP3 compatible player, choose to burn your CD as an audio disc. The songs will be converted to .wav format and will play on any audio player. However, you will only be able to store a limited amount of songs on the disc.
There are three sites online where I have found the best childrenís music to save and download. These are Free Kids Music.com, Kiddierecords.com, and ACME.com.
Free Kids Music.com is an extensive library of hundreds of free songs. You can choose to listen to the songs online, download them to your computer, or even visit the artistís website. The site is grouped into categories and you can select from an alphabetized listing of the artists.
Next is Kiddie Records.com. Kiddie Records began in 2005 as an intentional one-year project. Each week, a new childrenís record was added to the site and was made available for both downloading and listening online. As of 2007, three years of music has been added to the site and there is a wealth of childrenís music available to listen to as well as download and burn to CD, all free of charge.
Finally, the ACME.com site is dedicated to the golden age of science records with the Singing Science collection. There are six albums added to the site and they are all in MP3 format. All of the songs teach scientific principles and are a great way for children to learn and explore the world around them. I am sure that you and your children will enjoy listening to these childrenís records and songs that are made available free of charge.
