4th of July FUN: Day 2

Wasn’t all the freebies yesterday unbelievable? I hope you were able to take advantage of them. You can still get mine for free here.

We are now into Day 2 of the Music Teachers 4th of July Celebration and today is $4 Thursday! Great deals discounted to just $4.00. A couple months ago, I updated my Instrument and Composer Bundle so I thought I would go ahead and offer this set as our special today! These are easy to prep and use for students to put together on their own or in a group setting.

By the way, did you know when you purchase a product on TpT you will always have the most updated version without having to pay anything extra? This is one of my favorite features and one of the reasons I love being a seller on TpT because it ultimately saves you money. I can’t tell you how many times I have bought something only to find out a few years down the road there is an updated version and if I wanted it I would have to re-invest all over again. With TpT you just go to “my purchases” and it will notify you if a product has been updated so you can re-download. No need to purchase again. LOVE that! So… if you already have this bundle, go and re-download for the latest version!

To find the $4.00 deals. Just search for $4MusicFlashSale on TeachersPayTeachers! And don’t forget to follow!



Did you hear? I recently had the privilege to be one of Colin’s guest on a fabulous new podcast show called “The Modern Musician Show with Colin Thomson“. The podcast interview is now LIVE! Be sure to tune in to the show!

4th of July FUN: Day 1

I’m participating with Amy Abbott from Music a la Abbott (Thanks Amy!) along with some other fabulous music teachers on a fun 4th of July event this week! Each day until the 4th look out for something new.

Today we are kicking it off with a freebie! Be sure to grab those freebies TODAY because some of them will no longer be free tomorrow. You can find all these fantastic freebies by searching “July1stMusicFreedomFreebie” on TeachersPayTeachers.

As you go through and download, please be sure to follow each store. This will alert you whenever any of them add a new resource (paid or free) to their store.”

I decided to create a freebie to help students learn and remember the word’s to the United States National Anthem. Enjoy!



In other news… I’m also excited to announce that I have reached 500 followers on TpT! And you know what that means! I have a celebration in store. However, because I am diligently working hard on my new practice incentive program I will need to do a belated celebration. This celebration will only go out to my followers in their inbox on TeachersPayTeachers so if you aren’t following yet, you have time to do it now! Follow here. Once it goes out, it only goes to current followers.

Have a fabulous 4th of July week!

Travel more outside the United States…

One of the things that my husband and I enjoy doing (especially now that we are semi-empty nesters) is travel. But so far our traveling has been inside the United States or Mexico. We would love to one day venture out beyond the United States and Mexico and experience all there is out there!

New Kitchen Countertops, Microwave & Stove…

This year we have been re-doing our kitchen a little at a time. We re-did our cabinets back in January (over our anniversary, but don’t feel too bad, we went to Disney afterwards to celebrate!) and loved how they turned out. We used a rust-oleum kit. So the next thing we need are kitchen countertops, and a new microwave and stove to match the fridge and dishwasher.

Here is a picture of the before and after of the cabinets. We actually want to extend the cabinets as well… That will need to happen before we do the countertops.

1000 TpT Followers in 2016…

Then my last dream is to get to 1000 TpT followers by the end of 2016. Currently at 446, it may be a big dream. But I’m almost halfway there. Maybe you guys can help me fulfill that dream?! Just click “follow” here. 🙂 Seriously, I love making resources to help teachers have fun with their students, and if it makes life a little easier, even better!

What are your big dreams that you hope and wish for?

Makeover Madness

I am participating in a #TPTSellerChallenge where we are supposed to give some of our old products a makeover! I’ve been doing some small makeovers the last week or so but I was really excited because I knew which product in my store needed a major makeover. It has been on my list for awhile and this has given me the push to get it done!

So I am happy to announce that Magic of Music got a makeover! Check out some of these before and after pics!Screen Shot 2015-06-22 at 8.53.14 AM

HUGE difference! It makes me want to do this incentive program all over again! And one of these days I will for sure. But this year I’m working on a new one. Stay tuned for that one.

Thrifty Thursday

Summer is here can you feel it? I sure can! Arizona had an unusually cooler May and then decided to show herself. Yes, we have been spoiled. But that’s okay because it is supposed to cool down to the 90’s this week. I will take that “cool down”.

What a better way to celebrate the beginning of summer (besides kicking off summer camps- only 1 week left!) than to participate in a music flash sale!

The product I have on sale for just $2.00 is the newest one in my store. Just click the picture below to see all the details…

I had a fun time making these puzzles. Simple “brain break” activities, my students have enjoyed putting these puzzles together.



Just search for ThriftyMusicFlashSale on TpT to see all of the great $2 deals on sale through Thursday at midnight!
