In the second half of 18th century Germany, well-known composers came to create many folksong-like children's songs with simple, approachable, and short melodies. J.A. Hiller's "Lieder fur Kinder" can be called a leading work from the earliest part of that period. In this essay it became clear that Hiller's songs are musically simple compositions in structure, but many of the lyrics are instructive after a detailed analysis of the compositions and lyrics. Some children's songs, beginning with those of Hiller's "Lieder fur Kinder", were used as teaching material in the Philanthropin school etc., and this became an opportunity for worldly songs to be used as teaching material in schools. This can be said to be one beginning for the modernisation of music education.
