Music Tells a Story


For the 2023-2024 school year, we explore story telling in music. “Music Tells a Story” investigates how stories have influenced and inspired music from the classical era through today. The complete Music in the Schools curriculum includes:

  • Curriculum packet (download below) which includes descriptions of the music, composers, and backgrounds
  • State-mandated benchmarks and activities for grade levels K-6
