When kids play with Music-Go-Rounds—in group games, listening & movement activities, at the whiteboard, on charts, or in centers—they build confidence and skills.

Begin with Mark Burrow's book. Mark’s teaching expertise and humor shine in his guide to musical elements using our unique silicone manipulatives.
