The Music Teacher Group

Engagement without the Chaos

Get participation from EVERY music student

with less planning time than you ever thought possible

Dear music teacher,

If you want to create lessons that students are excited to participate in but structured enough to keep them from misbehaving so that chaos is avoided, then this is going to be the most important message you read all day.

Why the Music Teacher Group?

My story

I remember when I first started teaching.

I had no behavior management system, so chaos reigned.

I had trouble finding the happy balance between management and engagement, especially with classes that had behaviorally challenging students.

I struggled with trying to make classes fun enough that every student participated

Curriculum was a challenge, too. Everything either seemed too advanced or way too babyish for my students, so I’d lose them.

How do you plan?

It’s difficult to know what to teach and how to structure your units. 

You’re trying to figure out what songs and activities go with each grade level. 

You’re trying to find lessons for all students to relate to.  

Too many ideas

Plus, there are so many ideas out there, but narrowing it down and figuring out what works and how to actually execute it is tough

Behavior struggles

How do you create lessons that will be fun without creating chaos in your music classroom?

Find help

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a place where you could go to learn and grow as a music teacher? 

Structure lessons

Wouldn’t you love to learn how to sequence your lessons to keep everyone interested? 

Increase engagement

Wouldn’t you love to know where to find curriculum that is engaging for even your big kids?
