Minecraft in the Music Classroom

Minecraft is one way of learning general elementary music skills that meets kids where they are in everyday life. Concepts such as instrument families, rhythms, and music notes can be learned, explored, and reinforced in a fun, creative and collaborative way. My favorite part of using Minecraft to teach aspects of elementary music is leveling the playing field with my young students. I learn more about Minecraft, they learn more about music, and we all learn more about each other.
