DSO Kids

The kids pages of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra website have some great information and recordings. You can learn about composers, instruments, music theory and more. There is also a teachers section with some lesson plans and activities.

This is a great collection of lessons on the history of Rock and Roll. Lessons include lots of media content, printable activities, discussion questions, and more. There are lesson tracks organized chronologically or around various themes or grade levels. Lots of interesting and useful content...all for free!

Smart Music

This is an online tool to help students with music practice. Students use the online metronome, accompaniment and practice tools to improve quickly and receive feedback. This tool would be great to use in combination with music lessons, but could be used independently as well.

This company provides learning songs for pre-school and primary levels, with printable resources to accompany them. The songs are available on CD's, DVD's and online videos. They cover phonics, reading, math, and other early learning concepts. Great for kinetic and auditory learners.

Hoffman Academy

This is a very reasonably priced system for learning piano. There are video lessons and printable music. As a musician and former piano teacher, I'm impressed with the thorough, gentle approach of Mr. Hoffman in the videos. This is a much less expensive option than private music lessons, so a great way to get started.
