The music sign is made by taking your non-dominant forearm and holding it across your body. Then, take your dominant hand and wave it back and forth above your other forearm, as if conducting an orchestra.
Time to play some music and do some baby dancing. Make the music sign before you switch on the music, and soon your baby will figure out how to tell you when she wants you to start playing some tunes!
Signs like music are better demonstrated rather than using the flash cards. Turn on the radio or crank some tunes on your iPod to help your baby learn the sign for music.

ADMIN – Hi Jackson,
Most community colleges offer sign language classes that can help you get to the point that you can translate music into signs.
Is there a sign language for musical intervals, such as a major 5th/minor 6th, etc. Thanks
ADMIN – Hi Jill,
I believe there is not but it would be best if you consult with someone whose specialty is adult sign language
I just started teaching my 1 yr old! Such a great site! Do you have a sign for SONG?
ADMIN – Hi Diana,
It is the same as the sign for sing
Thank you so much for this site. We are teaching our 14mo old signs and this site is the clearest as far as showing how to do them.
How would I do music box?
ADMIN – Hi Jennifer,
I would do a compound sign. Box plus music plus the sign for open.
