The Secret Structure Of Children's Music

There are all sorts of music out there, but one genre that probably doesn't get enough attention is the songs that we sing for children. It's easy to write them off as simple (Because they are) but there's more to it than that: Children's music is how we pass on cultural ideas about the structure of music, and examining how they work can tell us a lot about what's actually important to us. Of course, working with such a limited palette can be pretty restricting, but if we look at what's been done, maybe we can find a way to make something new. Or maybe not. It's actually pretty hard. But we can try!
