I'm continually impressed by the quality of work we get from Music K-8 and the response it gets from kids and parents. PS: All of my chorus program was from Music K-8!
I have always struggled with teaching guitar to the whole class until I started using Music K-8 songs! Today, I had the class doing "Blueberry Waltz" in two parts, and it sounded great! I love that they can learn a simple chord and play a song right away! ("Learning My Guitar" and "Gonna Play Guitar" are great!) Just wanted to say THANK YOU to Plank Road for such great pieces that have my kids feeling like they can make music on such a difficult instrument!
Seriously. HOW do you all keep DOING this? [...] We are blessed to have you in our musical, educational lives!! Thank you, Paul and Teresa and Plank Road Publishing!!
I love all of your music. Teresa Jennings is the best.
I have depended on Music K-8 and the Jennings’ music for years, producing more successful programs than I can count. [...] I can never thank you enough for the beautiful ways you have touched me, the children, and parents. The tears, joy, and laughter that flow from your priceless work is unimaginable.
This is my second year using Music K-8, and it STILL continues to be my one-stop lifesaver for all my general music and concert needs. I am ALWAYS impressed by the quality of your products. Thank you!
I am a subscriber and a true believer in Music K-8. I love you guys!
I love Plank Road! It's the one resource I can't do without. I have been using the magazine for the past fifteen years. It's priceless.
I have always loved the magazine, but the videos have taken it to another level.
Thank you for keeping your magazine, affordable, fun, and relevant.
Music K-8, it's like you KNEW exactly what I needed. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
So here I am, wondering what to do with NO budget. I bought Music K-8 with my own $$ (which I've been doing for years). With issue 2 alone, I have practically everything I need: After-school choir will LOVE "The Holly and the Ivy," "Hear Those Bells," and "We Will Jingle" (LOL)! I needed something for all the kids to sing for Grandparents' Day (the day before Thanksgiving Break, and a VERY big deal at our school): Whoo-HOO! -- "Come Ye Thankful People Come" and "I Count My Blessings." We're supposed to do an international emphasis this year, especially including other languages ... Wheee!: "Celebramos" and even the Hawaiian one will work nicely.
Your music enhances our studies in so many ways.
Many thanks to Music K-8 and all the great things you have provided for the past 22 years. I love this magazine.
I wanted to comment on how I enjoy the choreography instruction videos that you have available now. So many of the songs in the magazine beg for movement; and for those of us not gifted in creating choreography, this is wonderful! This feature alone guarantees that I will continue my subscription.
I used Music K-8 when I taught elementary music in the early 1990's. When I returned to elementary music two years ago, I had to get back to this wonderful resource. My students LOVE the music, and my choirs are always the hit at any concert!
LOVE YOU ALL AND YOUR FABULOUS MUSIC! I have referred many friends to your site and I always will!
For the 17 years I have been teaching, your resource has remained a favorite. [...] From my experience, yours is the best resource! Thanks for keeping it simple, diverse, and kid and teacher friendly all these years. You all are truly a blessing, and I have been blessed to share your music with hundreds of kids!

Thank you so much for all the thoughtful effort you have put into your magazine. It is one of my first resources for a song to fit a specific occasion.

I have been a loyal subscriber since 1990, and my whole teaching career has had a generous sprinkling of musical gems from Music K-8. The magazine has been a godsend and has made my life easier. Kudos to Paul and Teresa and all of the wonderful staff.
