Radio Hour is a series of portfolio based music history curricula
for grades 5-12. These curricula study Classical, Jazz, Rock,
Black Music in America(BMIA), and Classroom Guitar while integrating
technology, music analysis, improvisation, movement, creative
writing and presentation skills. Each 100+ page Student workbook
will guide students through the study of musical styles, influential
musicians, and an understanding of the relationship between
music, history and culture.

buy CDs of Ella and Eminem. After developing this curriculum
for ten years, I invite you to put it to the test. The Radio

the first time I went I started plugging in your curriculum into
my learning results for the middle school level and it was amazing
that out of 22 results your program touched solidly on just about
