Music Classroom Organization

With the New Year still fresh in our minds, a lot of teachers (including me!) have organization on the brain! I've shared quite a few organizational tips on this blog over the years- it is half of my name after all- so today I thought I would share some of my favorite organization tips for the music classroom. I hope you find some fresh ideas in this post, and if you have other organizing tips for the music room I'd love for you to share them below! Click on each picture to read my tips for organizing every aspect of your music classroom (warning: this post is LONG)!

First, here's a tour of my latest classroom to give you a sense of the big picture:

1. Instrument Storage

2. Sheet Music

3. Recorders

4. Manipulatives

5. Seating

6. Teacher Area

7. Grades / Data / Records

8. Substitutes

9. Centers

10. Behavior Management

11. Planning

I think that just about covers it for today! If you made it to the end of this post: congratulations, and thank you ;) I hope you found some new ideas to help you be more organized in your music room! Which one(s) are you planning to implement?
