Called “the Pied Piper of children’s music” by Parents Magazine, Tom Chapin has been entertaining families with fun sing-along concerts and recordings for many years. At his website, you can listen to samples of his music and read about his musical family’s history and humanitarian endeavors as well.

Chapin’s music is now sold exclusively on CD — which left him with lots of leftover cassettes. In an effort to help teachers, therapists, and librarians bring music to children, he is offering FREE CASSETTES, while supplies last.

You simply request the cassettes on your school letterhead. You must pay $3.00 shipping for the first cassette you order, and $0.50 for each additional cassette. There is a minimum order of $5.00 — or, in other words, you’ll have to order at least 5 cassettes. There are a number of album titles available. In order to find the complete details on how to order, go to the website. Scroll below Chapin’s photo on the left side of the screen. Click on the words, “Tom Chapin wants to give you free music!” A new page opens with all of the details.

While you’re at the site, explore the menu to find information about Chapin’s family “Concerts” and some ideas for “Teachers” on how to use his music to teach various subjects. Not all of the links on the site work, but that’s a minor inconvenience.

Don’t miss listening to his song, “It’s Not On The Test” — a satirical look
at testing due to public education policies such as “No Child Left Behind.”
You can read the lyrics and listen to the song here.
