Since we started Let’s Play Music I have been busy building up the content based on my experience of 25 years teaching music. Nowadays there is a substantial amount of material to navigate with 100’s of themes and a huge variety of different activities, all with different educational benefits – sometimes it can be difficult to find what you’re looking for.
So to help you save time I’ve decided to introduce new weekly lesson plans which will cover a different theme or topic each week. They will provide advice and guidance on how best to use the existing content to structure balanced music lessons and help with inspiration which is sometimes difficult to sustain on a weekly basis.
The plans will include a detailed outline of each lesson with teaching support and tips, all the accompanying printable resources needed for each lesson and a full list of any recommended materials or music links required. They will also include detailed information on how you can adapt the lessons for children of different ages and experience levels.
Sometimes teachers of young children find the idea of ‘proper music lessons’ a bit daunting especially if they didn’t really study music themselves and I’ve had lots of questions on the blog about how to teach various musical concepts. So these plans will set out to guide the teacher through a structured weekly programme, which will not only explain and build up musical skills but will also be an enjoyable and fun weekly highlight in the classroom.
To make sure you don’t miss them, follow us on Facebook or subscribe to our newsletter which will have links to the latest posts. The titles below highlighted in green are links to the themes which are available now, click on the title to take you to the relevant page. The titles in grey are ones that will be coming soon. I’ll be adding them continuously over the next school year so there are many more themes to come. You can also explore the rest of the digital musical resources available on the website over in our store.

Here’s some feedback from satisfied customers 🙂
“I downloaded the clocks and mice lesson plan and LOVED it. I’d like to start a music program in my classroom based on your lessons. Is there a way to purchase more than one lesson at a time from you? I’d love to buy 30-40 lessons from you to fill up an entire school year if I could!”
“Thanks so much for doing these lessons plans they are great.”
“I am starting my first preschool music class next week and I need your website! :)”
“Thank you so much! I really appreciate your site. It’s been a wonderful resource for me as a music teacher.”
“Thank you for the quick response and music sheet! Fantastic! I am very pleased with your work!”
“I purchased your first piano lessons and love it. I also purchased Chester’s easiest piano course. Didn’t you have other suggestions for piano courses? I use Faber Series, but I like your book better and love Chester’s.”
