Lesson Plans

Looking for the right lesson plans for your music class?

NAfME members can use the My Music Class® library to find teaching ideas and resources. For almost 20 years, NAfME has been building a database of lesson plans. (You can search the archive here.)


With the new 2014 Music Standards, we’re relaunching and expanding that database. Members with great ideas for Standards-Based teaching can log on to My Music Class® to share their ideas with colleagues around the nation. The system will take you, step-by-step, through the way the standards are laid out, making it easy to post your lesson ideas. In the meantime, your Association is working on reclassifying and transferring the nearly 900 lessons already in the system. So, contribute to our profession! By sharing all our creative ideas as music educators, we can help focus programs for all our students. Log on to My Music Class® to contribute an idea and search the library of lessons as it grows.

With the My Music Class® tool, you can sort by subjects like chorus, orchestra, or mariachi and find your age group and topic.
