Frequently asked questions (FAQ's)

Question: Does this set require lots of prep?

Answer: I created this set so that it would require little prep. The lessons can be used as is, or can be edited. The accompanying materials can simply be printed or opened up. You will need to gather materials for each lesson, such as a hand drum, maraca, etc. There are a few picture books and recordings that you would need to purchase, or you could substitute with books or recordings you already own.

Question: Does this set require technology?

Answer: Many of the materials in this set can be used without technology. One lesson does require students to either use Chrome Music Lab on an interactive white board, or on Chromebooks or iPads.

Question: What if after purchasing this, I decide I want the rest of the bundle?

Answer: If you decide you'd like the rest of the bundle, you can purchase it, then reach out to TpT to request a refund for this set. If you have any issues with that, feel free to email me at

Question: Which programs do I need to open up the files?

Answer: The materials come in Google Drive. The file types include:

  • Adobe Reader
  • Google Slides
  • Google Docs
  • Google Sheets
