In the spirit of making music, here are some songs for inspiration:

"Mama Don't Allow," Brady Rymer – There are many versions of this traditional song featuring all the different things that a particular mother does not permit, musically-speaking, but Rymer's version is particularly energetic.

"Pots and Pans," Bacon Brothers & Mickey Hart – Hart, who drummed for the Grateful Dead, gives one kitchen an energetic workout. Pots never sounded so good!

"I Got a Pot'n Pan Band," Sam's Rot'n Pot'n Pan Band – This song actually directs kids to get pots and pans to play along, so be prepared...

"Driving in My Car," Ralph's World – In case you don't feel comfortable making up a song about driving in the car, Ralph's World has an easily memorizable song you can adapt.

"Oh Me, Oh My," Raffi –This gentle song brings it home that you don't need a radio (or a CD, or an iPod) for music – you can create your own.

It doesn’t take big cash to create a musician, but it does take a certain atmosphere. Even if your kids never master an instrument, teaching them to make music – out of tune or not – is sure to bring some joy now and down the road. Whether they’re cranking up their guitar, or just their stereo.
