Music Teacher Resources

We invite you to download, use and share these free resources for your instrumental music program.

You will find forms you can use, fact sheets, recruitment letters and other tools to help your program run smoothly and grow at the same time.  Some of these resources have been created by Progressive Music and others have been collected from teachers we have worked with over the years.  Feel free to adapt and use these files as you see fit for your program.

Learn how to advocate for your arts education program in this session from the 2017 Pennsylvania Arts Education Network Symposium
