Music Suggestions For An 11-year-old

Recommended Posts

My daughter is 11, and will be starting middle school next year. By the time I was her age, I was listening to the Ramones and the Dead Kennedys. I still love that music even though I am too old to. :rolleyes: But alas, my undying love for Punk Rock has not passed down to my daughter. If I have to hear that friggin Kelly Clarkson album one more time, I am going to come out of my tree!

Do any of you with similarly aged children have any good music suggestions for her? Something poppy and top-40, but without the sex, drugs and rock and roll. Well, rock and roll is OK, but I'd like to go easy on the sex and drugs!

My daughters love Janelle.

Janelle is big in Canada ... Christian music, but appealing to your daughter's age. http://www.janelle.cc/

My daughters also love Kelly Clarkson, so I think this will be a hit.

Also, they like Shania Twain ... but the daughter who does likes country music.

Michelle Branch, Vanessa Hudgens, and Stevie Brock are also hits with my girls.

Hilary Duff and Hannah Montana are also favorites.

Movie scores! The soundtracks to Harry Potter, Pirates of the Carribbean, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc.

And don't tell her that it is actually classified as classical music!

If she doesn't play an instrument, this would be a really good time to have her start, and then she can play whatever music she likes instead of just listening to it. It also will have a huge impact (a good one) on her academic abilities, especially if you can get private lessons for her.

My son loves They Might Be Giants. They're not exactly contemporary, 'cause they were big when I was a teen...but they are still really cool. They have an album just for kids that is fun, or you could pick some favorites off itunes.

gluten-free since January 26th, 2005

Feeling up and down, but better!

Mommy of a gluten-free 8 yr old, a 6 yr old who (much to her dismay) will be gluten-free soon and a 2 yr old who is so far symptom-free. Contemplating putting the whole family on the gluten-free diet since crumbs have become my nemisis!

My sister is 11, and I teach dance at the YMCA so i have to use clean music as well. she listens to a lot of christian bands and I use them for my dance classes. Even if you aren't religious, the majority of the bands songs give clean lyrics and good morals without neccisarily being "religious"

here are some suggestions:

Relient K, Hawk Nelson, Switchfoot, Toby Mac(his songs tend to be more on the religious side), Grits, superchick..There is a ton of "christian" music out there that even my friends that aren't religious like. I know there is also the "kelly clarkson" type sound as well out there, i just am not very familiar with it. My sisters two favorite bands are Hawk Nelson and Relient K, both of those are a harder rock sound though.

As far as Hannah Montana goes, I can only handle her and High School Musical for so long, but my kids in my dance class love both of those C.D.s a lot.

I have a ton of music so if you want any more suggestestions, just let me know. Hope that helped some.
