  • Bright Horizons Radio on Pandora

    Music the Whole Family Will Love!

    Music encourages rhythm, motor skills, and self-expression. It also teaches social skills, sounds, and language – important abilities that will help children make friends and face challenges when they enter school. 

    Bright Horizons Radio on Pandora® makes it easy to put music into your child’s world. Our station gives you access to family-friendly music from today’s popular artists that you can feel great about…and that everyone will enjoy.

    Looking to turn that music into learning? Strike a chord with Family Tambourine Making.
