Music is powerful. It has the ability to gather people from all walks of life and have them singing heir hearts out and dancing their socks off. It has the ability to make people happy, smile, laugh, cry, even fall in love. It makes us forget and remember things. It changes people’s lives.
Music is everywhere. It is present in the sound of raindrops, it can be heard amidst downtown traffic, perhaps even high up in the mountains and the echoes of the winds; remember Pocahontas? And because it really is, music can also be found in school. And I’m not talking about school hymns and anthems, I’m talking about music as a curriculum. Below are Sample Plans that can prove my point.

Music is the art of producing harmony and sounds. Despite its very simple definition, its nature is rather intricate and complicated. Aside from its healing or therapeutic wonders, it has its rich history and other technicalities and terms, worthy to be studied. If you are a teacher in music and you are wondering what to teach to your students, here are some of its subject matter that might interest them:
- Musical Instruments – I know that the human voice can already be music, but its not the only thing that can produce it. There can hardly be any music at all without instruments. You can start with its categories, such as the percussion, the brass, the strings, and the like. Plus, with bands and groups, people can see and hear everywhere, you can certainly make a lot of examples. Like guitars, keyboards, piano, drums, violins, and flute.
- Composers – There wouldn’t be any music without the people behind them. Your examples can range from Schubert to Mozart, to Liszt to Rachmaninoff. And don’t forget to show off their masterpieces.
- Timelines – There is also history in music. You can discuss ages like the Renaissance, baroque, the classical, and the romantic. You can also discuss the prominent composers that go along with the ages as well.
- Genres – You can also ask them what sort of genre in music that they like. Maybe some of them like pop, hip-hop, instrumentals.
But before you do your lessons, you have to write them in a lesson plan first. You can check out our Sample Music Lesson Plans for you to be guided. We also have other lesson plans you can choose from, such as Elementary Lesson Plan Samples.

There is a quote by a very famous French novelist, Victor Hugo, that goes, “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.” It’s true.
