Monsters in My Closet | Drumming/Music Lesson Plan – K-3rd

Need a music classroom lesson plan that’s jam packed with fun? This Monsters in My Closet | Drumming/Music Lesson Plan is perfect for primary grade music students.

The lesson plan is fully-scripted for teachers that are just getting started, or can be reviewed for the basic ideas if you are an experienced music teacher. The lesson plan also includes a super cute speech piece that was written by MakingMusicFun.net.


Music Lesson Plan Objective

The goal of this lesson plan is to teach primary age students basic drumming techniques. You can certainly enhance the lesson with a little rhythm reading for a phrase or two of the speech piece.
