What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Disney Music is a website featuring the latest hits of Disney and other tween-friendly stars. Its content can feel a little self-promotional at times: the homepage contains ads for Disney products; two of the top 2013 music picks are from a Disney movie and a Disney park performance; and several of the artists featured on the site are signed to Disney-owned labels. However, as a result, parents don't need to worry about kids being exposed to racy videos or lyrics. Disney's squeaky-clean stars tend to sing about tamer topics, like having a crush on someone.

What's it about?

The Disney Music site, created by Disney and entertainment platform Vevo, debuted in fall 2013. Replacing a site dedicated to the syndicated Radio Disney station, Disney Music features items from Vevo's 75,000+ video library and songs from Disney record label artists, plus a few more features. Kids can listen to a live Radio Disney stream, watch music videos, or check out a music news blog and pages for more than a dozen tween-friendly musicians. That's all free, although you can purchase some songs through iTunes. Other songs don't link to any audio or video files, and there isn't a ton of written content; but kids should be able to find enough to justify an occasional visit.

Is it any good?

Disney Music doesn't provide much educational value, and some parents may not be thrilled about the frequent product pushes. But the site can be a safe place for featured artists' fans to indulge in some online adoration. It's very up-to-date with kids' favorite musicians and their latest hits. The songs include clean lyrics and images, and videos are housed right on the site, so kids shouldn't stumble across questionable content -- ensuring their Disney Music experience remains in tune.

 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how easy it is to buy many of the songs you hear on the site. Identify some fun free things to do on the site and ask your child: Does hearing a song make you feel like you need to download it right away?
  • Music provides numerous opportunities for self-expression, whether you're listening to it or playing it. How do some of the site's songs make your child feel? Ask your child to identify the emotions a song describes.
  • Kids can't easily connect with each other through the site, making it a generally safe experience. Discuss the concerns that can arise on sites where you can post comments and friend other users. What kind of information should kids never post?
