Calling All Educators!
Adding music to all aspects of a curriculum is a way to inspire students AND bring music to schools. Whether a school has a music program, or whether it does not, the addition of music concepts to the teaching of other subjects will bring more music into kids’ lives.
The Spirit of Harmony Foundation is looking for ways in which educators have successfully added a music component to “non-music” subjects. Have you integrated music into your non-music classes, or do you have a great idea for a way to make that happen?
As one great example, Teachrock.org specializes in fully developed free lesson plans that integrate history, popular music, and cultural studies.
For another example, one of our partners, Roots of American Music, added a musical component to a lesson on Civil Rights in a very creative way:
Please also visit Creative Concepts in Music for some wonderful ideas!
We would love to hear and share your own examples of bringing music to lesson plans for subjects like Math, Geography, Science, Literature, History, etc.
