Class Notes Lesson Plans provide free classroom resources to foster an understanding, love, and appreciation of music.
The Class Notes Lesson Library includes over a hundred lessons that help K‑12 teachers save time and find new ideas. Designed to be easily adapted or extended, these standards-based lessons can be modified to fit the unique needs of every teacher and classroom.
We’ve done the work so you don’t have to! Our lesson plans include printable worksheets, visuals, listening maps and more. Our staff designs user-friendly, ready-to-go resources full of carefully curated high-quality video and audio.
Any of our lesson plans can be a starting point for sub plans. Many are written with a non-musical sub in mind. Check out Cross-Curricular Connections and Instrument Exploration for some ready-to-go ideas.
Class Notes lessons provide fresh ideas if you’re feeling stuck or in a rut. Check out Listening Lessons to find new repertoire for in-class listening or use a Virtual Concert to introduce a familiar concept in a new way.
Maybe you’re an instrumentalist expected to teach vocal techniques or a vocalist teaching improvisation for the first time. We have lessons to make you confident in teaching any music subject. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Reach out to a team member to suggest a lesson!
For teachers in Minnesota, we offer free, in-person concerts. Upon booking a concert, our staff recommends a catered set of lessons to prepare to host an artist.
Class Notes digital resources meet Minnesota’s music education standards, which align with national standards.
