Well, for "my cracker!" I'd probably say, "yep, that's right; that's your cracker."
For the music, I'd probably say, "we're all really enjoying the music! Thank you for sharing it with us."
Which might help, or might not. I guess my main point is that I don't sweat the "mine" thing; I just let her know when she's right--and gently let her know when she's not: "No, those are Daddy's keys, not yours. Daddy's sharing the keys with you."
My dd's big thing right now (besides "no" and "mine") is "go." As in "mommy, get out of the chair so I can sit in it" or "get out of my way, I'm coming through." And then there's "no go": "no, I'm not going to let you stop me from jumping up and down on the crib mattress. Step away from the crib, Mom!"
