One hour is all it takes to learn lullabies on the guitar. One. Hour.

Recently, a very close friend of mine had her first baby. Her new daughter is a cutie! Like many first-time new parents, my friend didn't have a lot of time. Between changing diapers and loving her baby, she was super busy. She told me that she was overwhelmed with the excitement of having this baby around, which also meant she had far less time to devote to things she wanted to do. This was okay because caring for her daughter gave her so much pleasure.

My friend wanted to learn to play guitar for years. When I approached her to see if she wanted to learn guitar and sing lullabies for her baby, she got super excited! Not 30 seconds later, she got super worried that it would be too hard. Since I've been a guitar teacher for more than a decade, it seemed like a wonderful challenge to help her learn lullabies without any extra stress. What happened was magical!

The first lullaby my friend learned was Brother John, otherwise known as Frere Jacques. I taught her how to tune her guitar in five minutes, how to play her first chord in another five minutes, and then after I demonstrated the song for her she jumped right in and sang for her baby immediately, right on the spot. You should have seen the smile on this baby! She was sooooo happy! My friend was surprised that she could learn a simple lullaby with just one chord. Not only that, but I showed her three more lullabies that required just one extra chord. Within an hour, she could play and sing four lullabies.

I told my friend I was thinking of making an online course on teaching songs to sing to babies and she said it was a great idea. She was also very clear about what I needed to do:

"Dave, you need to make sure that you make it easy for people to learn. First-time parents need a win. They want to do things right for their babies, but lack the experience to do it well. If you can make learning lullabies easy, you'll do great."

That sort of feedback was priceless. I know it's easy to learn anything if you have the right method, so I put a lot of effort into making this really easy to learn.

Learning to sing a lullaby should be the easiest and most natural thing for parents to do. It shouldn't take very much time to learn a song to sing to a baby! Here's my promise to you: This course will show you seven songs to sing to your baby without it taking any extra time or energy on your part. In fact, you can learn all of these lullabies when your baby is sleeping!

My friend now has seven baby songs to sing, and she sings on a daily basis. She does it with her own voice, her own guitar, and her own love for her baby.

This course can show you how, too.


This course is 100% beginner friendly. It was designed for people who have zero experience on guitar and zero experience singing.

Take it to a local guitar shop and ask them to take a look at it for you, and ask for an estimate. If the estimate comes out to be more than $30, then tell them you think that's too expensive and ask them why it's so much. Most guitar repairs are less than $30 to do.
I don't have a guitar. Can I still learn to sing these lullabies?
Absolutely, but having a guitar makes it easier. I have included a full guitar-buying guide with the purchase of this course. BTW, an excellent guitar will cost you around $200-$300.

Yes! Anyone can. I've deliberately structured this course to be so simple that anyone can do it. Learning songs to sing to babies has never been easier.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact me in the first 30 days and I will give you a full refund.
I am tone deaf. Is this course even for a person like me?
Yes! Your baby doesn't care that you sing in tune. It cares that you try to connect with it! Singing, in any form and even if you're tone deaf, is a way to connect with your baby and make it happy!

This course is great for anyone who wants to sing a lullaby for a baby. This includes aunts and uncles, grandmothers, and grandfathers, and friends.


Babies do great with music, and there are plenty of studies that prove it. Here are just a few:

Among many scientists, there is a general (careful) consensus that music helps children in many ways. This wonderful dissertation talks about how fetus' learn in-utero: http://skylinekids.com/documents/GrowthDevelopment...

This article from WebMD showed how babies are given a foundation for language development when mothers speak to their baby. The implication is that by singing to your baby while it's in the womb (and playing guitar) will give also give it an introduction to music: http://www.webmd.com/baby/news/20130102/babies-lea...

Penn State University's Rick Gilmore believes that babies are constantly learning in utero. Remarkably, fetus' can pick out language patterns of the mother's native language. http://news.psu.edu/story/141254/2009/02/23/resear...

Of course, there's room for dissenting opinions on music for children. This article takes a step back and talks rationally about the (possible) effects of music on the fetus. https://www.babycenter.com/0_music-and-your-unborn...

Though there is great debate over the Mozart-Effect, aka kids becoming smarter as a result of listening to Mozart before birth, there is still ample evidence that having kids listen to music creates a better spacial intelligence, as this Telegraph.co.uk article suggests: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/children/11...

If you need more evidence for the effect of prenatal music exposure, check this article out: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.137...

Sciencemag.com wrote an article going over the learning capabilities of babies in utero by reviewing an article that reported the results of repeating a made-up word to the fetus. After being born, the baby recognized the word! http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2013/08/babies-lear...
