What educators are saying

My students were fascinated! It was a great unit for using pop music to teach music elements and some early theory.
I had used this unit bundle to supplement my popular music history lessons. It was great to get kids learning terminology and listening more attentively to musical elements.

    What if, instead of fighting against pop music, we used it to our advantage?

    This pop music unit is made up of 3 separate mini-units that fit together to teach different characteristics of pop music. These lessons are high quality analysis that teach the actual theory behind the music that your students are already listening to - but written in a way that YOU DON'T NEED TO BE A MUSIC SPECIALIST TO TEACH IT.

    Part 1: Pop 101 (inspired by the hit song by Marianas Trench)

    Part 2: The Millennial Whoop (inspired by a blog post by Patrick Metzger)

    Part 3: Four Chords (inspired by the comedy song by Axis of Awesome)

    *NEW BONUS FILE* Support distance learning with a digital student notebook file. (ONLY available with this full-unit bundle!)
