This is a specially bundled collection of 7 of my most popular projects that center around sound design and music in film. You'll get 7 printable Project Packets including student instructions, a worksheet (for most projects), a rubric, as well as comprehensive resources for the teacher.
Note: Although two projects come from my seasonal bundle, they can really be done at any time of the year.
I also have available a growing Mega Bundle with all projects and worksheets from my store - as well as a curriculum map with standards. Perfect for those who teach a 1-2 year long music technology program. Its a HUGE value and contains literally everything you need to teach a year-long (or longer) music tech course.

These projects do require you to understand how to use a DAW, so if this is a new topic for you, you'll probably need to study up on some of the basics. But don't be overwhelmed, you don’t need to be a pro to begin teaching these lessons. I wasn’t when I started. You’ll learn with the students as you progress. Each project is sequential; they start with the basic functions of the DAW and move toward more advanced features.

Each project is very comprehensive and includes a “project details sheet” that can be printed and given to students, as well as a worksheet (if applicable).
For every project, the project details sheet will include the following:
