Songs for every topic

All topics (holidays, special education, skills), all subjects and contents (Science, Arts, Social Sciences...) anything you need for your lessons, you can teach it through songs.

And, if you need extra help or inspiration on how to introduce songs and music in the classroom, there are lots of articles in "Articles and teaching tips" section.
Have fun exploiting and exploring this fantastic resource that makes teaching more enjoyable.

How to use songs

One of the big problems we all face, whether teaching English to children or adults, is maintaining learners’ interest throughout our lessons. Consequently, we often have to be very creative in the techniques we use. What makes music such a great teaching tool is its universal appeal, connecting all cultures and languages. This makes it one of the best and most motivating resources in the classroom, regardless of the age or background of the learner.
This is the introduction of the article by Adam J.Simpson "How to use songs in the English language classroom". He gives tips about planning for the use of songs in class and he also points out "Six steps for making a song the focus of your class". Very useful to make your English lessons memorable for the students.

Another interesting site where you can find songs for teaching and much more is
