This set of free online resources for music teachers includes lesson plans and activities, summative and formative assessments, video examples, and documented best practices. Designed to be effective and adaptable in a wide variety of music classrooms, the resources were developed through Carnegie Hall’s five-year residency in a New York City elementary/middle school.
The Toolbox currently features grade-specific music education resources addressing fundamentals of Rhythm and Meter, Form and Design, Expressive Qualities, Pitch, and Performing.
The Music Educators Toolbox was developed in partnership with PS/MS 161 in upper Manhattan. Major funding in support of this partnership was provided by The Irene Diamond Fund. Additional support was provided by the Lanie & Ethel Foundation.
An ongoing project, the Music Educators Toolbox will continue to expand in the following content areas: resources for grades 6–12, resources for ensemble directors, and resources for administrators.
To access resources related to the Music Educators Toolbox, you may be asked to sign in to Carnegie Hall’s Digital Library. The Digital Library provides access to free digital resources for teaching and learning from Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.
