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

We are starting remote, but I don’t see any handheld instruments being used this year. I don’t have a class set of anything other than rhythm sticks. I can create a class set or more of eggshakers. Can wipe either of those down if I only use once a day, but I often have 2-4 classes in a row who would use them. I have a class entering as one exits, so there is no time in between for sanitizing even the chairs, much less instruments or mallets.
I saw someone post a sanitizing cart on here though. Supplies on top, and bins below to hold items to be sanitized. If you had 2x the number of mallets needed, you could have a clean set to be used, while the first set is drying from being sprayed down and keep rotating.


Thank you!

I've been in-person since Sept. 8. Kids sanitize hand as they enter (masked, sitting 6' apart). We use the mallet instruments, then I clean the mallets afterwards. My bars are fiberglass so I clean them at the end of the day. Kids sanitize hands on the way out of class too.

Hope it’s ok posting this here, I’m just feeling down.

My best friend since we were about 6 years old is getting married. She asked my twin sister to be her bridesmaid, but not me. She said it was hard choice (i understand, she has other close friends) and she wants to still be apart of her day as a “female usher”.

I’ve never really heard of a female usher. Is this something any of you have seen before? Gonna be honest - I’m feeling a little down that she didn’t ask me but i know it’s limited

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.


How do you set up your classroom? What can you tell me about how often you use instruments? What do you do to make them accessible? Thanks so much.


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!

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 🙃
