Looking for some elementary music education resources?  I’m sharing elementary music education resources to build and/or replenish any music curriculum.

You’ll find the Sing Play Create elementary music education resources are adaptable, interactive, and easy to use too!

FACTS ABOUT TEACHING ELEMENTARY MUSIC

Many elementary music teachers are trained in Orff and/or Kodaly methodologies. Some music teachers are great musicians that find themselves teaching general music without those trainings.

Some music educators are not musically trained and need the basics.

No matter where you are on the spectrum of music education preparation, you share some things in common with all music teachers!

  • Elementary music teachers need sequentially based activities for multiple grade levels.
  • The elementary music teacher plans lessons and activities for multiple grade levels usually Kindergarten through 5th grade.
  • Music education classes are generally one or two times a week for 30-45 minutes.
  • Music educators are expected to have students perform in concerts or music programs several times a year.
  • Usually there is one elementary music teacher at a school.
  • Elementary music teachers are part of the “Special Area” group of teachers.

What other things do you find them to have in common?

Sing Play Create offers materials that support ORFF and KODALY methodologies.

In addition, many of the elementary music education resources include both Solfege note reading, as well as Orff arrangements.

Many teachers find that having a monthly lesson bundle for all grades makes their teaching and planning easier.  They focus on activities for 4-6 weeks of learning.

This makes it easy to plan sequentially across your grade levels.

Elementary music educators can use the Rhythm Bundles, Chants, Music Lessons and theory, instrument, dynamics activities to create an entire curriculum for the elementary music program.

To meet the needs of my younger students, I developed a Kindergarten as well as preschool activities that focus on the basics.

My students loved all the train activities.

As a result, I created units for the basic elements I wanted my younger students to get in music class.

GET THE BUNDLE

Train Music Lesson Bundle: Beat, Rhythm, Tempo, Pitch, Dynamics (Pre-K & K)
Here’s a brief description of what’s included:
Get on board learning music concepts using the animated train action VIDEOS in this set of resources.

The Train Music Lesson bundle is for Preschool and Kindergarten as well as first grade music students. The bundle has lessons on beat, rhythm, fast/slow, high/low, long/short, loud/soft activities. The lessons include songs, chants, flashcards, worksheets and movement activities to support the learning goals!

The train themed music along with the animated videos are sure to keep students “choo-chooing” through their music lessons.

This bundle will give the new or experienced music teacher tons of materials to establish a music curriculum teaching the basic core music elements.

 Perfect for Preschool, Kindergarten and First Grade Music and movement classes.

ELEMENTARY MUSIC CONCEPTS

In the elementary music classroom you’ll want to develop a curriculum that teaches the basic elements of music.

  • Sound (overtone, timbre, pitch, amplitude, duration)
  • Melody
  • Harmony
  • Rhythm
  • Texture
  • Structure/form
  • Expression (dynamics, tempo, articulation)

Sing Play Create offers elementary music education resources that support all of these concepts.

MUSIC CONCEPT UNITS

And we offer seasonal songs for holidays and seasons.

SEASONAL SONGS

MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES

It can be challenging to support learning goals and keep students moving too.

Don’t know how to use movement to teach music concepts?

It’s easy to incorporate one movement type activity into your lessons at a time.

For instance, you may want to begin with body percussion.

Then I added in scarf, parachute, stretchy band, and bean bag activities as well as relay games.

Check out this blog post on why and how to use movement in your classroom.

And, be sure to check out our movement activities.

CREATING A CURRICULUM

Sing Play Create offers core elementary music education activities for each grade level, and thematic and seasonal activities that support the learning goals too.

Because I feel that it’s important to incorporate activities for students to SING, SAY, PLAY, CREATE, COMPOSE, MOVE in every lesson or unit of activities!

That’s why I created the variety of lessons, songs, chants, and movement activities. You can create an elementary music curriculum using our interactive resources.

This way you’ll reach ALL your learners and keep everyone engaged and learning.
