The Learning Groove's online training will teach you hundreds of engaging activities using the songs and stories found on our six award-winning CDs. Free downloads of the CDs, a two year syllabus, and teacher tracks are all included in the training. We also train you in early music and language theory, dynamic teaching techniques, effective classroom management, and how to promote your classes.

We are a research informed music program created by the bestselling author of Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes (Eric Litwin) and an award-winning musician (Michael Levine). So our focus is on both early music education and early language development for all children. This is part of what makes us so unique.

Meet Some of Our Teachers

"I started with The Learning Groove at the very beginning! I photographed Mr. Michael teaching a class, got really energized and exclaimed 'I want to do what you do!'  I love my families, and they come back session after session!  I enjoy seeing the children develop and grow to love music.  I enjoy the good vibes, the smiles, and the laughter.  The Learning Groove training allows me the flexibility to teach while pursuing my photography career. It also gives me the flexibility to have time with my preschool-aged son and enjoy time with my family. I LOVE being a teacher. I love The Learning Groove! "

"As a touring songwriter, teaching music gives me a wonderful way to stay immersed in my music and my community while raising my own children.  Each of the 6 TLG CDs is designed to aid several specific learning goals, and they sound great (something you don't always get in kids' music).  Training was inexpensive compared to other music and movement programs, and it was thorough.  I felt well equipped to launch into my own classes, and have steadily added students since I began.  Plus, the TLG family is supportive, always ready to offer advice, answer questions, and pass on performance and teaching opportunities."

Former Kindergartern Teacher, Mommy

"For as far back as I can remember, I have always been singing.  I was that kid who had a "microphone" (aka hairbrush) in hand, singing in front of the mirror to a Helen Reddy record.  While teaching music classes, I get to enjoy one of my favorite things (music) with some of my favorite people (children).  I love being part of something that gives kids a vehicle to be creative.  And while it is a great time and lots of fun, I know the music is providing so much more for them - cultural experiences, exposure to different rhythms, rhymes, a safe place to take risks in sharing their thoughts and ideas - and, pleasantly, I find I'm learning right along with them."

"I love The Learning Groove songs because they offers a perfect mix of classic folk tunes and original contemporary music. The curriculum, based on solid research in early childhood music, gives me a strong base and frees me up to be in the moment with the families who come to class. TLG songs are also great for special events like birthday parties and school assemblies because the repertoire can work across a wide age range. I've started experimenting with music classes focusing on English as an additional language, and the early results are very promising!"
