I am a middle school general/vocal music teacher in my 16th year of teaching. I teach general music 6-8th grades and I have over 200 students total in my three choruses (6, 7, and 8th grades). my students have earned "Excellent" and "Superior" ratings at festival. I serve as a judge for all-state auditions and Solo and Ensemble contests. I also teach bassoon and oboe privately from my home.
I am a great planner and I love to write lessons. So, take advantage of my plans. I've already done the work for you! Use, change, and adapt as you need to for your teaching situation.
