When planning lessons, I use a variety of sources from my years as a music teacher and therapist but the following are the main curriculum for the classes and a few reasons why I chose each.
2. Music K-8 by Plank Road
I can’t express enough how much I love the children’s choral music in Music K-8. Every issue has music that can be used with either beginners or advanced choral singers and most issues are themed so there’s less time planning recitals. I also like using their recordings for listening activities. Children love hearing other children sing and these recording feature some wonderful choirs.
3. Chimes of Dunkirk and manuals by New England Dancing Masters
This series of instruction manuals teaches the history of folk dances and has dance steps that are easy for children to follow. The series begins with Chimes of Dunkirk, a longways reel adapted from a French circle dance, that sets beginners up for more challenging reels like Alabama Gal. I’ve used this in my public school classroom, in the homeschool class, in Social Music with young adults with Autism, and with typical adults at a company party. It’s simple enough for everyone to learn and yet still fun. Everyone always wants to do it again at the next class!
