If you teach music, you'll know how long it can take to produce high-quality curriculum materials. That's why we invented the unique Worksheet Creator in collaboration with experienced teachers and educators. The Worksheet Creator frees up many hours of your time by giving you a comprehensive range of ready-made teaching materials – over 1700 worksheets, projects, exercises, songs, instrumental pieces, lyrics, posters, reference material and other resources.

They can be used by individuals or groups in class, or for homework - either on paper or on computer. All of the materials are carefully designed to fulfil curriculum requirements, and to suit school students of all ages. Some of them (such as the repertoire and reference material) are also useful for universities and instrumental teachers.

Many of the worksheets have random questions that are different each time. You can produce both a worksheet for the student and a completed answer sheet to save time when marking. And it all takes just a few seconds.

Using your own worksheets

But you don't have to use the Worksheet Creator materials as they are. You can either adapt them to your own requirements, or create your own worksheets based on blank templates provided. You can also add your own worksheets to the Worksheet Creator for future re-use; or publish them on for your students to view, play, print and download.
