Songs in Spanish for Kids


(Skip to Songs for Older Students)

Songs are so good for Spanish learners. Older students seem to enjoy good authentic music best, and with little ones, I use more themed songs. I've gathered our favorites on this page so you can find what you need.

If you are a non-native parent like me, songs in Spanish for kids are perfect for improving your own language, and learning Hispanic culture right along with your kids-- especially the nursery rhymes and folk songs.

If you are using songs to learn Spanish, here's a good tip: you can adjust the speed on YouTube by clicking the settings button in the lower right corner. The subtitles aren’t always accurate, but adjusting the speed at first can help make it more comprehensible.

Spanish Songs for Older Students


Here I've collected songs by traditional Spanish class levels. If you are new to teaching with authentic music, look below for some ideas, resources, and examples of how to teach with songs.

For me, it's been one of the most enjoyable and life-giving strategies in my classroom. I learn and enjoy right along with my students. Different students like different songs, but they will often go home and listen on their own. (Voluntary, self-directed input? Yes please!). I've also had students travel to Latin America or eat a Latin restaurant and report back how excited they were to recognize songs on the radio.
