Music teachers are busy!
We teach students across many grade levels, and in many cases every student in the school!  Most of us are solitary music islands surrounded by a sea teeming with language arts, math, science, and social studies teachers.   

Have you ever thought. . .
  • I have a great lesson idea, but I don't have time to create the visuals.
  • I don't have much of a budget for music resources.
  • I could make some cute manipulatives, but I just don't have the time.
  • I'd like to teach some jazz, but I don't have time to gather resources.
  • I need some quick, complete lesson ideas because I have to do (name your extra thing) this week.

Familiar?  You are in the right place!
My name is Sally Utley, and I love using my tech skills to create time-saving resources for busy music teachers like you.  In my 30+ years as a music educator, I have never had much of a budget, and time is always at a premium.  My goal is to share lessons and experiences to help you be the amazing music teacher that you are.
In my Teachers Pay Teachers store, I have products that you can use to motivate your students, please your administration, make your own life a little easier, and remain true to our purpose of training young musicians.

Fun Facts
