Perfect for Veterans Day, or any other Patriotic Musical Unit. This is a guided listening unit focused on the official songs, marches, and hymns of the United States Armed Forces. This product can easily be adapted for the general classroom as well.

There is a PowerPoint and PDF version of the presentation. Editable slides are included in the PowerPoint version. In both, you will find information regarding the:



-Marine Corps

-Air Force

-Coast Guard

Each section includes the following sections:

-Brief History

-Facts (Motto, Colors, Song)

-Official Song Information

-Listen to it! (1-2 samples per branch)

A follow along worksheet is included, and lyric sheets are provided for all lyric-bearing pieces. Two Air Force lyric sheets have been included. One has the original "Helluvah Roar", and the other has "Heck of a Roar".


SafeShareTV takes YouTube links and eliminates the distractions of related videos, autoplay, and best of all, NO ADS! This is why some sort of safe-viewer is recommended in the classroom. I have also made sure to edit the videos to crop out any unnecessary beginning time (like applause) so you get right to the music after clicking the link.

When opening the Listen To It pages, click any of the titles to be taken to a video of the piece.

Please make sure your district does not block YouTube or SafeShareTV before attempting to access the video links in your classroom. Please note that the download does not contain actual video and audio files. All videos are internet-based. Links are clickable in PDF files only and are found in the Listen To It pages unless specified otherwise.

To see if your institution allows SafeShareTV, (from your institution's technology) click the link below to test the connection.

If your institution happens to block SafeShareTV and you would like to still access the videos, SafeShareTV does have a download option available. To do this, you would still need to access the link from a location where SafeShareTV is not blocked.
