I am currently a Middle School and High School band director, part time, at a small private school. I have 11 years experience total, but none have been with Elementary School. I am certified K-12 Music. Our lower school music teacher is retiring and the entire program, K-12, has been offered to me as a full time position. I have never taught lower school music so I am looking for advice on curriculums. We have a very limited, almost non-existent, budget. I am looking to create a more grounded program, which should help boost my band program. The Lower School music teacher has never used a curriculum, in fact she was a retired elementary language arts teacher who loves music. She was hired before I came to teach elementary music but had limited background. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
