During this trying and uncertain time, we want to do our part to help music educators as you explore options and search for resources to facilitate online teaching.

Since teaching face-to-face is not possible during this COVID-19 pandemic, our educational partners and other companies are offering resources and solutions, including free lesson plans and subscriptions, to help you navigate these unchartered waters to teach music in new and creative ways.

As always, the music education community is showing its strength and supportive nature — this time by tackling online teaching and online learning together.

To address this immediate need, the NAMM Foundation presented a webinar on March 18 on Bridging the Gap: Teaching and Learning Music Online. The NAMM Foundation has also presented Making Music Online: How-Tos for Private and Group Lessons and Making Music Online: How-Tos for Ensembles lists hundreds of sites that cover all subjects, including students’ social-emotional well-being. This list is updated regularly. Please be prudent and thoroughly research each company before signing up.

Below is a list of music-specific sites and sources. As more artists and educators post and create resources, we will update this list. Email us at with questions or to submit a site to be included. 

NAMM, GRAMMY® Music Education Coalition and Save the Music have similar lists of online resources for teachers.
