Plan lessons to teach specific musical skills and theories using methods that will engage classes of students. May teach general music in grades k-12 or lead a band, orchestra, or choir. Adapt the methods based upon the ages and abilities of the children. Employ classroom management techniques to maintain an environment conducive to learning. May also lead small groups practicing and performing specific skills or coordinate school-wide performances. Some music teachers offer private or small group lessons instead of teaching in a school setting.
