March Music


It's the month of March. And it's Music in Our Schools Month. So why not play marches?

  • March around the room to the music. March around the school.
  • Call out "Left, Right..." as children march.
  • Beat out a marching rhythm on a different instrument each day.
  • Have a counting march and an alphabet march where children call out numbers or letters to the beat.
  • Introduce the "March King," John Phillip Sousa and his marches, including "The Stars and Stripes Forever" and "The Washington Post March."
  • Also march to the "March of the Toy Soldiers" from The Nutcracker.
