Tell us your story. A call for Guest Bloggers
October 6, 2018
Do you have a story to tell? We are looking for amazing parents and business owners to share their insights, inspiration and expertise with the Music Beat community.
Tell us your story! Guest bloggers wanted
At Music Beat our philosophy is to be ‘developing every day’ to match the needs of the families and communities we support.
We are dedicated to helping you connect with your musical self and to make music a part of your everyday life; to support your little ones as they grow, learn and develop to reach their potential no matter their abilities.
Our Music Beat Blog publishes practical and useful articles for expecting, new and experienced parents. When we started we aimed to present noteworthy tips and resources for all things musical for your baby, toddler and child.
But it has become so much more than just a blog; it is a community brimming with amazing stories and insights.
And we want to continue to build our community around our shared love of music and ‘developing every day’.
So we want to hear from you!
What should you write about?
The Music Beat blog focuses on six key areas: Tips for Parents, Music Early Learning, Parent Testimonials, the Musical Parent, Music Therapy and Music Lessons.
We love blog posts that give practical advice to parents to help them with challenges, or inspirational posts to help keep them motivated. Below are some great guest posts from the past:
If you would like to write on a topic—or know someone who would make a great guest blogger—we want to hear from you!
If you are a local business we’d love hear about the services you provide for expecting and new mums, as well as parents and families. Keep it educational and informative – nobody likes a hard sell!

All content must be exclusive to the Music Beat Blog, original and authored by you. You may use ideas and concepts you have written about previously as long as the content itself is new and unique.
