What educators are saying

Going to use this to supplement my school's curriculum as my first year as a music teacher. I like the formatting and lesson plans for this resource!
So excited to you this amazing resource! I love how it’s organized by month! I cannot wait to use it this year. How amazing you are to share! I can tell the work you put into this.


This is a complete curriculum resource for K-6 general music. It is designed to be adapted to a variety of teaching needs, so the material is organized by concept within each month rather than scripted lessons (a sample lesson sequence is included for your reference)- you can design your own specific lesson plans based on the standards you need to address, the amount of class time you have, and the students and resources you have in your classes. Everything you need to teach the lessons are included.

You'll save money with this bundle- you get one grade FREE with your purchase!

The materials in this set are the ones I use in my own classroom. My teaching is based on training in a variety of methodologies including Orff, Kodaly, Dalcroze, and Suzuki, and I am careful to incorporate a wide range of learning styles and interests in my lessons. This set can be used as a stand-alone curriculum- there is enough material to cover the 8 half-hour lessons per month that I see each grade- or you can pick and choose your favorites to incorporate into other curricula you may already be using. Material can easily be expanded to cover more grades, including middle school and preschool or condensed for less class time, and the sequencing can be switched around to meet teacher preference or methodologies.

To see which concepts are covered in each grade, please look at the individual grade level sets linked below.

While the resource is designed to meet the U.S. National Core Arts Standards, there are no formal lesson plans referencing specific standards- you can easily copy and paste into whatever format you need for your school. Please take a close look at the preview to get a clear idea of how the lesson ideas are presented. You can also download a free copy of the September resources for 5th grade here to see what is included and test it out in your classroom, and watch this video to see everything that's included in the set.

Included in this set:

A description of the lesson activities for each grade, organized within each grade by skill/concept taught (fully-editable word document and PDF formats)

A sample lesson sequence listing which activities I teach each lesson (word and PDF)

Assessments with sample rubrics

Slides and visuals to use with the lessons (powerpoint and PDF)

Worksheets and other printables to use with the lessons (PDF)

A song reference, with each song used in the lessons notated for your reference (word document- notated songs are JPG image files)
