  • Dear Music Box Friends,

    It is time to jingle all the way through the holidays and the winter months with these jingle bell favorites. There is bell ringing for every age group.

    For a little history on the most popular bell song, that has been mislabeled at some schools as a Christmas song, check out this Jingle Bells blog. TIP! Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the blog to see some links for awesome videos and resources for jingle bell activities for both early childhood and elementary.

    Free to Music Box Members!


    A video workshop how to teach Jingle Bells to beginning recorder players AND the SMARTBoard Visuals and student handout. I'll show you why we have a blast in recorder class on our "ski runs."


    NEW to purchase in Music Box Downloads! SMARTBoard Visuals for Recorder Rookies Set 2 and 3.These can be used for lessons 7-12 and 13-18. If your lessons are shorter than 50-55 minutes, you will get many more weeks of lessons since this recorder curriculum is jam packed with singing, moving, playing and creating fun!



    Can we add your district's music supervisor or principal to our list to inform them about professional development opportunities for you and your fellow teachers? Many school districts are paying for their teachers to train online and we have an increase in school districts paying for their teachers to come to the live training in the summer. Many have scheduled workshops during the school year. We are happy to contact your district's music supervisor, principal, or in-service coordinator to get you more training and resources. Please fill out the short survey below.

    Happy Music Making,
