My Music Classroom

I am the music teacher for the Mother's Day Out Program at my church. This will be my third year teaching for them. Ages are from 6 months through Kindergarten so my schedule is full. I love being able to see every kid every Tues/Thurs, even for just a little bit.

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.

I absolutely love my classroom and the kids really enjoy it too! I'm so thankful for the little things!!!


  1. I love the way you did it - so glad you have a music room now!

  2. Love it! Especially that you didn't spend a fortune on boarders! Hope you have a blessed year in your new room!


Thank you for following us through our many adventures. We look forward to hearing from you!!!
