I get you!


You’re a music educator who loves what you do. You love gathering songs and activities to engage your students during music class. You want to have a clear long range plan at the start of the year, with an idea of where you are going with every grade level, but you either create those long range plans and abandon them, OR life gets too busy and you are left scrambling each week to put together your lessons.


You keep telling yourself THIS is the year you will create better plans and start off the year on the right foot. 


Guess what? This year can finally be the year you have solid long range plans and a process for creating engaging lesson plans and assessments, so that you can start off the year calm and relaxed.

FAQ's



When I join Planning Perfection, will I get immediate access to all of the lessons?
When you join, you’ll immediately have access to the welcome module. Then, once the course begins, you’ll get access to 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 2 modules a week, you can do the lessons on your own time, as you have access for the lifetime of the course.

If I’ve taken Kodály training, would this course still be beneficial?
Yes! Whether or not you’ve taken Kodály training, this course will be helpful. I designed the course to be beneficial to those without Kodály training, to teach the foundations of planning, and to those with Kodály training, to extend on what you've already learned.
