Top 3 Amazon Product MUST-HAVES For Music Teachers

Jul 11, 2023

Let's cut to the chase- I've compiled my top three FAVORITE Amazon items that have made my daily teaching just a smidge easier. But before we crescendo to the top 3 picks, here is an honorable mention, that I recently installed on one of the bulletin boards leading to my classroom...

#3.5 Peel & Stick Music Wallpaper




#3 Contigo West Loop Stainless Steel Vacuum-Insulated Travel Mug

In 3rd place, the lifeline of every music maestro – caffeine. And what better to cradle that precious elixir than the Contigo West Loop Stainless Steel Vacuum-Insulated Travel Mug. Believe me when I say this is my daily partner-in-crime while teaching, keeping my coffee at just the right temperature. Don't believe me? Well, believe video-me. How about cold drinks? Those stay chill for up to 12 hours, perfect for cooling down after finding out your students don't know the difference between a quarter note and a Treble Clef...


#2 "Music Teacher Moments: Why Altos NEVER Sing the Melody…"

Ok ok, I'm a little biased on this one, but I'm looking forward to sharing "Music Teacher Moments: Why Altos NEVER Sing the Melody…" with my music students next school year. Not only will your students love to pick it up and read it in your classroom, but each purchase also grants access to the gut-busting video version. Plot twist? My wife lends her melodious voice to the alto character. A definite MUST-HAVE for any choir director!


#1 Presentation Remote with Air Mouse Function

At the top of the charts is THE BEST piece of technology I never knew I needed - this wireless presentation remote that operates like a Wii remote with a laser pointer! Picture this: controlling everything on your classroom projector like you're conducting an invisible orchestra, waving your magic wand like a tech-savvy wizard. This remote will make you the maestro of multimedia presentations, Three Minute Theory interactive video lessons, Rhythm Rumbler, video vocal warmups and more! Be sure to check out the full video review below! 👇


*Honorable mention: Alesis Recital Pro - 88 Key Digital Piano Keyboard*

While I know music teachers' classrooms vary greatly, allow me to make one last shoutout to the Alesis Recital Pro. I've owned this 88-key marvel for years, and, note for note, dollar for dollar, it's the best MIDI keyboard you can get for your classroom or home studio (where I currently use mine) on Amazon. Right price, midi connectivity, FULLY-weighted keys, built-in metronome and transpose functions... 🤌
