Music Resources for Teachers

Bring some music into your classroom with lessons and printables! Celebrate Music in Our Schools Month in March or enjoy music on a regular basis with your students. We have multicultural activities incorporating Mexican, Native American, Chinese, and South American music into your curriculum; you'll find printable instructions for building musical instruments; they'll learn the history of musical genres like Rock 'n' Roll and Jazz with detailed references; and of course, there are lyrics of plenty of songs for you and your class to sing and enjoy!
