Usually, my music class is in the preschool chapel, but I have to set up every Tuesday and tear down every Thursday for Sunday services. This year, I actually get my own room!!!! I don't have to worry about any setting up or tearing down.
After searching the internet for ideas on how to decorate a music classroom, I found some ideas. Since all the classes are named after animals (giraffes, elephants, etc.), I decided to nickname my room the Music Zoo and used that as my theme.
Here is the door as you walk in.
This "bulletin" board is on the back wall. The charts talk about note values, dynamics, staff lines, etc. My students learn how to read music starting in Pre-K.
I've received so many comments on this bulletin board with the Zoo Pal Plates as a border. We talked about colors this week in class, so it actually worked very well as a visual aid also.
This is another Zoo Pal idea I found online.
This is the instrument area. I have lots of instruments for the kids to use this year. I will actually be playing some songs on the keyboard during class too. We've already practiced rhythm patterns in Kindergarten.
