Did anyone else’s back-to-school plan not include music at all? I’ve been told I’m still supposed to teach music this year, but they haven’t announced any plans for it yet. You’d think the classes that contain the most students per day would be a higher concern 🙃

We are still waiting. I’m half suspecting that I will be on a cart, so I am the only one going in and out, but who knows...at least I have been on a cart before. 🤨

Update: still don’t know what the schedule will look like, but each class will have 2 specials a day ( art, music, PE, library or computer) and we are going back remote to start. May move to hybrid after 5 weeks, may not.

How do you keep up/in touch with your network? Mine barely post anything on LinkedIn, so commenting on their posts is out of the question, and apparently it's impolite to just message or email them if the job searcher doesn't have anything to share besides asking for a referral or opening. If I don't have any relevant information to share with them, what should I do?

Additional Posts in Elementary Music Teachers

Hi! Can someone recommend a source for learning how do simple, fun music lessons on Zoom? I teach first grade and use music for my transitions. I would also like to play songs for them with my guitar, but am concerned it won’t sound good on zoom (the guitar, not my voice, which is bad, we established that long ago)

Out of curiosity, how do you all feel about the “haha, recorder is a joke” jab from other teachers? While I enjoy a good laugh, it kind of bothers me coming from non-music teachers.


And now you know the rest of the story

Hey! I’m planning to take an Orff Level 1 course this summer. Any tips, tricks, or advice as I prepare? Also, what other trainings would you recommend for elementary general music teachers? Thanks in advance!

I have a hand full of k-5 students who have gone the first half of the school year without music because of remote learning. Our district is moving to 100% traditional teaching after the MLK holiday. Any suggestions for reintroducing concepts to the group of students that’ll be joining us f2f for music the first time this school year?

So how are you planing to do mallet work this year with disinfecting in between kids, classes, etc?

If anyone needs awesome, fun music activities, search Vincent Bates on youtube. He's a music education professor and has his music education students play music games so we can learn, too!

How are you preparing your music classroom for long term shut down?
I put small stuff away. Covered all shelves, floor drums, Orff instruments with sheets to deter dust accumulation.


Just heard that my district will have classroom and live-recording learning. I’m thankful because I now can feed my family, my newborn and a recent-sponsored wife! I’m scared because I’m almost 50 and I’m afraid I might catch the virus and die leaving behind my 1 month baby and a wife who is not legal in the state yet! The USCIS or Trump’s dept. thinks she’s not good enough to be in the US!! We applied for green card and SS card since August 2019!
