Music Bundle

Create a Montessori music and movement curriculum

Carolyn Lucento

For seasoned and novice teachers:
this bundle has everything you need to create and run a robust music program in your classroom.

Are you a Montessori educator looking to enhance your music curriculum but not sure where to start or where to go next?
Does the thought of introducing music concepts or conducting a music session leave you feeling overwhelmed?
Or maybe you feel stuck in a rut, recycling the same old songs and are craving fresh, creative ideas?

Incorporating music into your Montessori classroom can seem daunting, especially if you don't have a strong musical background yourself. The challenge to provide a diverse range of engaging, age-appropriate music activities, combined with the pressure to manage an enriching learning environment, can feel immense.
This is where Carolyn's Music Bundle comes in! This bundle of comprehensive, expert-designed music courses is tailored to meet your needs as a Montessori teacher and equip you with the knowledge, strategies, and confidence to bring the enchantment of music into your environment.
No matter your current level of musical expertise, these courses offer a step-by-step, stress-free path to nurturing a thriving music program in your Montessori setting.

🔕Training on using the Montessori Bells is not included.
"Carolyn fuses such joy and passion into her teaching! 
Her gentle nature and positive energy are infectious. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to be a Montessori music teacher at the preschool or early elementary level or incorporate music activities and exploration into a child's school day. Carolyn provides explanations of essential music concepts, demonstrations of how to lead weekly music circles, activities for extension and review of concepts, and shelf work for students to participate in throughout the week. This course was a true pleasure to take!" -Alexandra Krauth

I signed up for this course after teaching at a Montessori school for one year as a teacher assistant and music teacher. During that year I had little Montessori training and was not sure how to organize lessons in a way that would help students build musical competence. This course has taken all of that stress away for this upcoming school year. It is so wonderful to have an organized outline of how to teach important musical concepts to young children, and to be able to take these ideas and use them alongside my own lesson plans. -Jennifer Forbes
