Who Uses Fiddlefox

Families

World Heritage Songbooks invite music education into the home, bringing a world of rhyme, movement, melody, and culture to your living room. Spend quality music time with your young child on their own terms as they sing through volume after volume of illustrated world children’s music.

Classroom Teachers

Our read, sing, and play method is tailored to help early childhood teachers enrich their classrooms with dynamic musical content, fun craft activities, and music games. Accompany your next concert with our traditional instrumental tracks or collaborate with teachers around your school to create cross-curricular cultural units and performance events. Fiddlefox’s companion activity books provide teachers with fun facts, coloring pages, puzzles, and choreography inspired by each collection of songs.

Music Educators

Our multicultural music curriculum adds colorful context to your teaching routine, providing you with lesson plans, extra-curricular content, and video resources for continuing professional development. Fiddlefox’s rainbow bell notation helps students as young as 3 develop sight reading and ear training skills at the foundational stages of their musical development. With songs composed in a diverse range of meters, modes, tonalities, and styles, veteran music instructors can use these songs as a springboard into deep music learning.

What People are Saying About Fiddlefox

I feel like I discovered El Dorado or something! Now I can plan three years’ worth of programs over the summer and never have to scramble for songs again! They even have an instrumental version of each song so that you can use it for your program. Heaven.

What a great program for young people. I love the interactive content, and how anyone can start using the content immediately. I’m not a musician, but I feel like a hero to my kid when we use Fiddlefox together!

This it the most comprehensive cultural program that I’ve seen for kids. Kids should have the opportunity to explore the cultures of the world, and Fiddlefox really provides an incredible opportunity for kids to do that with their materials.

How do you develop the materials for Fiddlefox?

Fiddlefox is developed in connection with Rock and Roll Daycare, an award-winning childcare program in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Over 100 children and 50 teachers are given the materials for 2 months prior to release on fiddlefox music.com.

Our international team consists of individuals from Mexico, Nepal, Canada, Philippines, New York City, Boston, and Nashville.

We begin the Fiddlefox development process by working with a native of the featured country to choose four folk songs that represent a variety of styles from their culture. The Fiddlefox then travels between four countries to create the sights and sounds which categorize World Heritage Songbook.
