At www.musicplayonline.com there are Lesson Modules, with lessons for every week of the school year. I’ve got 6 weeks left to build to catch up to when I started building these – at the beginning of the first lockdown.
What's New in Musicplay with Denise Gagne
In this post, I’ll share music lesson plans for PK-6 for January week 2. I create these lessons at www.Musicplayonline.com and they are set up in a step-by-step format with videos, interactive activities, solfa and rhythm practice, optional worksheets for a 45 min. music class. If you have 2 classes/week, there are many extensions possible. Many teachers use the Musicplayonline website “freestyle” -is choosing their own songs, and the activities that go with them. Or they use the Ukulele, Guitar, Recorder or Boomwhacker sections to teach instruments. But if you’d like easy planning for a week, or have a sub coming in, these Lesson Modules are great!

This is my Wednesday Webinar video (no chat) for Nov. 18th, 2020. In today’s video, Denise shares many holiday ideas for concerts without singing: 6 holiday bucket drum pieces that include demos; 6 new Christmas Boomwhacker pieces with practice and performance tempos; Jingle Bells Cup Game, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas Hand Clap Game under black lights. We’ve also got 8 rhythm band arrangements for gr. 1-7!
This weeks Wednesday Webinar is just a video – not a webinar. Same great info and ideas! Questions? post in the comments!
Peter and the Wolf is work created by Prokofiev that is beloved by children all over the world. Each of the characters in the story is represented by a different instrument. It’s an excellent way to introduce young children to the instruments of the orchestra. At www.Musicplayonline.com we’ve created a Unit with 4 lessons to teach the story, introduce all the themes, introduce the instruments and in the final lesson, watch a video of the story with the music. This website is open for FREE STUDENT ACCESS while schools are closed due to Coronavirus.
With Coronavirus cases topping 100,000 worldwide, schools are starting to close and teachers are having to teach their music classes online. There are a variety of ways to do this. One of our Shanghai teachers has been teaching by making videos for her students, posting them on YouTube and sending them the link. Some teachers are going to try to teach virtually using Zoom, Google Hangouts or Skype. At Musicplayonline, our first response to the possibility of students need learning at home lessons was to open additional areas of the Musicplayonline website to students. The following areas of Musicplayonline are now open to students:
