    Hi guys,

    For the first time, I will be teaching two periods of General Music next year to 5 and 6 graders. I am not a music teacher, but have a lot of music background. Can anyone give me some links to websites, books, and other ideas I can use to make my class effective? I already sponsor a guitar club and have several guitars, a keyboard, and a set of drums. I will appreciate anything you can throw my way. Thanks.

    I'm new to this forum, so I just saw this. My masters program was on integrating arts into general music classes, especially for the upper elementary and middle school crowd. I sell it on teachers pay teachers if you are interested. You can check it out under my store name -- Ms. Christine's Music Class.

    Hope this helps!

    Have them memorize ONE popular song as a class in 10-15 second sequences using the instrument of their choice. Give them a large amount of time to do it.
