Before I tell you about this course, let’s talk about who this is really for…


  • You’re a music educator who cares deeply about your students. 
  • You want your students to have more choice, to be fully engaged in every lesson, and to grow as musicians. 
  • Your current lesson plans have been working pretty well, but you know you could give students more ownership, more opportunities to improve their understanding, and more chances to work in small groups. 
  • You’ve heard about centers, and maybe you’ve even tried them...but you’re not sure exactly how to set them up to get the most out of them. 


If you’re anything like I was before I discovered the magic of music centers, you’re probably overwhelmed by...


🎵 All the materials you’d need 

🎵 How to organize music centers

🎵 How to handle a small space along with COVID-19 regulations

🎵 Monitoring student behavior


Whether you’re new to centers, or have been trying them here and there in your music classroom, you’re in the right place!


Music Centers

Masterclass will give you the tools and structure to...


  • Effectively and confidently implement centers
  • Allow students to feel empowered through more choice
  • Provide increased opportunities to incorporate intervention to struggling students 
  • Get more reliable data by assessing students one on one, or in small groups

...even if you have a tiny classroom!

AND

... even if health regulations prevent your students from sharing materials yet!

By the end of this program,

you will have…

Frequently Asked Questions


What if I’m not sure what next school year will look like, with COVID-19 regulations? Should I still take the course?

Yes! I’ve designed the course to give you ideas no matter what your situation! I’ll be sharing ideas for how to implement centers, even if you can’t share materials.


What if I have a small classroom, or I teach on a cart? Will the course be helpful? 

Yes! I’ve included ideas for small and shared spaces, so that you and your students can still be successful with centers.


When I join Music Centers Masterclass, will I get immediate access to all of the lessons?

When you join, you’ll immediately have access to a welcome module. Then, once the course begins, you’ll have access to 1-2 modules per week.


What if I have a busy summer and can’t keep “on track” with the course?

No worries! Although I’ll be releasing 1-2 modules a week, you can do the lessons on your own time, as you have access for the lifetime of the course.


Will graduate credit and/or CEU’s be offered for the course?

A certificate of completion for CEU’s will be available. Although graduate credit is not directly available, information will be available inside the course for how to use the hours you spend on the course to receive graduate credit through a separate independent study course.

Yes! Just send an email to Aileen at [email protected] and she'll send you the necessary information!


Will Aileen be available and accessible throughout the course?

No worries! In the course, I give you plenty of suggestions for your specific situation, including lack of instruments and materials.

Imagine if...

A few months from now, when the new school year starts, your students arrive at your music classroom and they find a music classroom set up with enticing and engaging music centers.

 In just a few weeks after school starts, each of your classes is excited as they walk through your door, motivated to apply musical concepts. 

Within a month, your classroom is running smoothly, with little to no management issues. Your students have ownership over their learning, as they are able to choose activities and explore on their own.

Imagine that, in December, when burnout is typically very real, often sapping much of the joy from your teaching, you are actually excited to go into class each day knowing that you will be able to create authentic interactions with your students while showing real growth and progress on their report cards (and without spending hours after school, getting materials ready!)

So much is possible when you use a more student-centered method that allows your students to gain confidence and skill through choice and determination: giving them agency, while facilitating their musical growth!


Still thinking about it?

You should give Music Centers Masterclass a 14 day risk free shot if any of this applies to you:

  • Your upper elementary students aren’t as engaged with music class as you’d like them to be, and you’re not sure how to fix that,
  • You want to spend more time with your family, instead of creating lessons and materials for the school year, and
  • You’d like to start this next school year with a solid plan, with lessons and materials already created!


I can’t wait for you to join Music Centers Masterclass


I’ve had so much fun using centers in my music classroom. I’ve made my share of mistakes and missteps with centers, so I’m excited to share my experiences so that you can avoid those missteps and move forward with a better path!

One of the most rewarding parts of implementing centers in my classroom is watching my students take ownership of their learning, making their own choices, and growing as musicians.

And I absolutely love sharing ideas with music educators just like you. If you join me in this course, I know that you will be energized and excited about the next school year, and your students will have more ownership in your music classroom.

See you inside the course,

Aileen
