Freebie: Weekly Schedule

It's concert season!  If your spring rehearsal schedule is anything like mine, it's hectic.  I have found a few tricks to keep everyone informed but my newest makes me happy because it's pretty.

I started sending out this weekly schedule to my chorus parents to help keep everyone on the same page. Right now I have 3 days of after school rehearsals.  I find that when I'm doing a musical breaking things up a bit helps keep me sane.  I usually have movement rehearsals to work on specific dances or movements with the characters who perform them, acting rehearsals for all speaking parts and chorus rehearsal for everyone. This seems to keep things a bit more sane for me and this template helps make sure everyone knows when to stay after school.

You can request this editable template in the freebies section of my blog (listed under performing groups as Weekly Schedule Template).  You may need to download the fonts from to make it look like mine.  I used:  Cutie Patootie for the white text and Jack Story for the colored text.


  1. Hello! I’m an elementary band and orchestra director in Maryland but I also work as a music specialist at a Summer Camp. I’m so excited to look through your blog for some great ideas to use this summer! I’ve linked you on my blog if you’d like to check it out. Thanks for such a great resource!

    1. I remember elementary band from when I lived in New Hampshire. We have elementary strings in Florida but not band.

      I checked out your blog, love the outfits! I'll add a link to your blog later this weekend, hopefully. I'm getting more and more forgetful, pregnancy brain! :) Feel free to remind me.

      Glad you are finding my site helpful.

  2. I'm a longtime follower of your blog. I particularly love your ideas for organization and simple tips to making teaching easier (magnets on a xylophone visual to indicate bordun notes). I've nominated you for a Liebster Award. You can find out more by visiting my blog here: The Yellow Brick Road. I look forward to your next post!


    1. I just checked out your blog. Hooray for another elementary music blogger! It's such a great community, with great information. Thank you for nominating me for a Liebster Award! I have a couple of posts in the works, I just need to take pictures. I keep forgetting! I'm hoping to get my act together and have them up soon. :)


Thank you for commenting on this post! :)
