We were sent 3 new Disney Musical Exploration Storybooks for the purpose of review. As a musical family we love sharing products we love, especially when they feature our favorite Disney characters! All thoughts and opinions are our own.

I teach music as a profession. I’ve noticed though that several of my students who thrive in my music classes come from households where music is alive and expressed through multiple family members.
Some of my favorite memories with my sons have been making up our own songs, taking time to dance, and spontaneous jam sessions on pots, pans, and whatever cardboard we have laying around.
If you are looking for fun music based activities for kids, try the new Disney Musical Exploration Storybooks. Disney and Hal Leonard have teamed up to feature your favorite Disney characters and stories in a series of Disney music storybooks and online content to help young children develop their musical skills and knowledge through creative play.
My favorite is the Moana: The Beat of Your Heart musical exploration book because it combines all the fun of musical play with world music and pre-literacy graphic notation. These are skills that not only prepare a child for a lifetime of music making but also for decoding higher-level thinking. Kids will develop their sense of inner pulse by playing along with the drums of Motonui on percussions instruments they craft themselves!
