So many times our children’s’ first step into the world of musical performance is onstage in a musical. We know that love is strong and so we asked our teachers for their favorite musical theatre songbooks for your kids.

It comes as no surprise that our current favorite musical is Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda. We’ve found our favorite Hamilton vocal selections book for you. This songbook has been edited to remove any implied explicitness. It has favorites like I’m Not Throwing Away My Shot, Wait for It, You’ll Be Back, On Your Side, and Dear Theodosia. Some songs have a word or two that we will help students change.
