When Elementary Music Teachers Need Help, We are Here

Our small team is dedicated to helping elementary music teachers develop students’ music literacy and performance skills while having fun!

Hello, music friend.

My name is Terri Lloyd. My mission is and has been for many years, developing music literacy and performance skills for all students beginning in the elementary grades and making it FUN!

Our small team is here to help you develop a simple, sustainable system for developing your students’ music literacy skills. Reading music is the foundation of music literacy, but, I want you to think in broad terms.

Terri Lloyd, Music Teacher at Frau Musik USA, Welcome

Music literacy is more than reading the spots on the page.

Developing a solid repertoire, learning about instrumental masterworks, performance skills, and even learning about instruments are important elements in developing music literacy.

Technology can be a Powerful Tool for Developing Music Literacy

Technology has been an important TOOL in my classrooms for MANY years. In fact, I was the first teacher in our entire building to get a SmartBoard! That does not happen very often in music classrooms.

When used correctly, technology can be a powerful tool. We harness that power to create lessons that teach music literacy skills while being fun, effective, and engaging for students and simple for teachers to implement.

A Little About “Mi”

I have over 25 years of teaching experience in the elementary music classroom. During the height of the pandemic, I taught online music classes for the Missouri Launch program. My primary job now is serving as an educational consultant and creating music education resources to support other elementary teachers like you. 

Like most music teachers, I have worn many different “hats”. I have taught band in grades 5-12 and high school vocal music. Serving on the music staff at my church brings me great joy.

Music Teachers are Performers

I am an active performer in our community playing clarinet with Southside Philharmonic Orchestra and saxophone with Kapital Kicks Dance Band as well as performing in pit orchestras for local theatre groups.
