MUSICPLAY Kindergarten



Denise Gagne's award-winning music curriculum offers separate digital resources for Smartboard and other interactive white boards or for computer and projector.

Introduce musical concepts through songs and games in sequential lessons that follow the calendar year. Weekly Lessons present singing games to reinforce new concepts, introduce world cultures, and provide special holiday and other performance songs.

These kits are valuable to classroom teachers and music specialists alike, and work well with any methodology, including Orff and Kodaly. MusicPlay also includes cross-curricular connections to language arts, math, social studies, science, basic skills, health, and social skills. It meets all state and national standards for grade level skills, scope, sequence and assessments.

Additional Info


I have MusicplayOnline – what’s the difference?

The printed materials included in the teacher guide are accessible across MusicplayOnline, but they are spread across the website rather than in one single location. Having the printed teacher’s guide saves you assembly time and the printing costs of assembling your own teacher’s guide.

On MusicplayOnline you do have access to download the song accompaniment mp3s. However, MusicplayOnline does not allow you to download song vocal mp3s. Gain instant access to downloadable song vocal mp3s and classical listening excerpt mp3s with this teacher’s guide, perfect for offline situations such as gym performances or unexpected internet disruptions.

Finally, the world has moved to the internet but that doesn’t mean you have to. If you prefer using a printed program with audio mp3s or don’t have the internet signal to support teaching from a website, this printed teacher’s guide is for you.
