Having trouble finding that perfect gift for your music teacher?
Buying gifts for anyone can be difficult, but often you just need to see some great ideas to get the inspiration you need.
That’s why I’ve compiled this post of great music teacher gifts.
Not only can they inspire you to come up with a great gift idea of your own, you might actually find the perfect gift among the suggestions below.
I’ve tried to include gifts for him and her and ones that can work as Christmas presents, Birthday presents, Anniversary gifts, gifts for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, etc.
By the time you get to the bottom of this page, you will hopefully know exactly what to buy the person who is teaching you music.
Great Gifts For Music Teachers
Music-Themed Coffee or Tea Mug
The mug pictured is a white ceramic coffee or tea mug, but there are tons of other styles available, too. I’m sure you’ll find something that will appeal to your particular music teacher’s sense of humor.
The mug pictured here is safe to use in the microwave or dishwasher. The lettering is on both sides and uses only the highest-quality ink, so it doesn’t fade over time. The mug measures 4 by 4 by 4 inches and holds 11 ounces.
Mugs like this make a great gift for any occasion, be it Christmas, a birthday, Father’s or Mother’s Day, an anniversary or just to say thank you. And if, for some reason, the you gave it to doesn’t like it, you can return it for a full refund.
CafePress Circle Of Fifths Wall Clock
If you don’t teach music, you probably wouldn’t want this on your wall. But for someone who does, this clock from CafePress would be perfect on the wall of their classroom.
It is a large clock, with a 17 inch diameter, making it easy to read from across a room. But only students who have been paying attention would even be able to make sense of what they see.
The clock runs completely silent and uses high-quality Quartz movement to ensure accurate time-keeping. It runs on one AA battery, which is included when you buy the clock. That’s always a nice touch—who doesn’t hate getting a present that requires batteries to operate, but not getting the batteries.
This large, music-themed wall clock is not only clever (read about the circle of fifths here), but can serve as a constant reminder to any music instructor’s students. More than that, it makes for a wonderful conversation piece.
Music Note Scarf
The music note scarf pictured here is made by Purple Box Jewelry and it also comes in red, purple and white and with a number of different music-related designs, from notes to piano keys. In addition there are a ton of other scarves available with musical designs, so you’re sure to find one that would appeal to your music instructor.
The Purple Box Jewelry scarves feel like silk, but are actually made from 100% polyester. Obviously silk would be better, but that would increase the price considerably. As it is, it sells for a very low price, making it a great gift.
These scarves are one-size-fits-all. They measure 13 inches across and 60 inches in length. They are great scarves, but go ahead and click below to browse all the scarves available on Amazon, to see which one would be best for your teacher.
“World’s Best Music Teacher” Christmas Tree Ornament
If you’re shopping for a Christmas gift for your music teacher, you can’t go wrong with a Christmas tree ornament. This one made by Inspired Silver isn’t actually made from silver, but from white metal with a shiny silver-toned coating.
This ornament is 2.5 inches in height and width, while the charm in the middle is about half an inch high and across. The charm is inscripted with the words “World’s Best Music Teacher.” The words are surrounded by 1.5 carats of pave-set cubic zirconia accents.
The ornament comes with a silver rope and a black velvet pouch. It’s a great Christmas gift for anyone in the business of teaching music.
There are a lot of different ties with musical motifs, so you’ll definitely find one that suits the person for whom you’re shopping. You can check out all the different musical ties on Amazon here.
The tie pictured here is the skinny novelty music tie from Match Music. It actually comes in three different styles: the one in the photo, another one with larger notes and clefs in white on black material and a black tie with white piano keys.
The Music Match tie is made from 100% polyester, but it has a satin style and feels like silk. It is 2 inches wide and suits most shirt styles and colors. To see the various other ties with musical motifs, click the button below.
Treble Clef Brooches
Jewelry with musical themes is always a great gift for a music teacher. For a male teacher, cuff links or tie clips make great choices and for female teachers necklaces, earrings and brooches make perfect presents.
The brooch pictured here is a large silver-toned treble clef by Heirloom Finds and it includes pendant earrings. The brooch measures 1.8 inches in height and 1.6 inches in width. It can also be worn as a necklace by adding a chain. It comes in a gift box.

Musical Notes Sticky Notes Booklet
What teacher doesn’t need sticky notes? Scratch that. What person doesn’t need sticky notes? But teachers need them more than most. So why not give your teacher a booklet of notes with a musical theme like this booklet from The Unemployed Philosophers Guild.
The booklet measures 3.25 by 4.25 inches and contains over 200 notes that are shaped like musical notes and staves. Like all sticky notes, these are self-sticking and just as easily peeled off again.
The Unemployed Philosophers Guild actually make a whole bunch of differently-themed sticky notes booklets, but this is the one you want for your music teacher. It is functional and it makes a great conversation piece.
Handmade Ceramic Wall Plaque With Musical Puns
Any music teacher would love to have one of these handmade ceramic plaques from Mountain Meadows Pottery adorning the wall of their classroom or studio.
The plaques measure about 4 by 6 inches, but the size may differ since they are all handmade. They are made from a soft, pliable clay and individually decorated. The plaque retains the natural clay color, but is covered in a glossy finish. The lettering is dark blue.
Each plaque is packaged as a gift in sustainable materials. The packaging has a wonderful, unique design. Also included is a weatherproof nylon string, so the plaque can be hung outdoors as well. All materials used come from the USA.
