    Which instrument do you find most cost effective for teaching children music in a school setting?

    That would depend on the grade level.  In grades three or four, I would start with recorders.  They are great for getting students started using their air correctly, introducing fingerings and increasing reading skills.  By grade six, guitar class is a great way to keep students engaged, and guitars are very reasonably priced.  Of course, choral music is extremely cost-effective at any age!  I hope this answers your question.  If you need any more information, please feel free to contact me for follow up!  Thanks!

    If I could only have one instrument it would be a guitar for accompanying songs. For kids to play, it is fun to use "found" instruments. I have a hub on this topic if you want more information. Body percussion is great too. (clapping, stamping, patting various rhythms.) And as DawnSings said below, singing is free.
