Theory Experts: Music Theory Curriculum – Printable PDFs and Digital Interactive Google Slides. This curriculum was designed to work in person and for distance learning. We have created 3 different levels to work for all ages K-12, you can purchase them as a bundle or individually as you need. Each lesson contains instructions and guides on the page for students to be able to learn on their own or with a parent’s help. We have ALSO created video lessons that directly accompany the lessons.

I highly encourage everyone to take a look at my Noteflight Mystery Song Assignment Blog Post – This is a great FREE activity that teaches students about chord progressions, creating a bass line, etc. – It also helps them learn how to use notation software! From there, if you want to continue along this path, I recommending looking into my Mystery Song Bundle.
A one week safety net review plan mostly using MusicTheory.net This incorporates perfectly into Google Classroom with people dealing with a 1-1 computer situation. You can literally copy and paste the information directly out of this and make assignments in Google Classroom! View the Google Doc Unit Plan here.
Project Based Learning – Middle School & High School
We have several projects geared towards Middle School & High School. Distance learning provides ample opportunity for students to work at their own pace on a project. View our bundle of projects (also available to purchase separately). Included in this bundle are a large scale Music Genre Research Project, Music Time Period Research Project, smaller Music Genre Presentation Project, Composer Presentation Project, Music Culture Presentation Project, and an Instrument Presentation Project.
Presentation & Guided Note Units
All of these units are completely digital and ready for distance learning. We have a Music Cultures: World Music Unit, Composers: Music History Unit, and Instrument Family Unit. All units have Google Slide Presentations and guided notes (print and digital) to accompany them. There are EXCELLENT links to YouTube videos for students to experience what is being discussed. For a complete walk through of “How to use Presentation & Guided Note Units for Distance Learning” in multiple situations- read our blog post HERE.
Elementary Specific Ideas
We have three completely independent sing-along and activity books that could be sent home with students. All of the products come with sheet music, color by music pages, and other activities to keep students learning about music from home. Can You Count? is a song about learning the value of whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, and 8th notes . Name the Notes is a song about about learning the lines and spaces of the treble clef. Old Blue is a fun song about living with a faithful dog. These are great send home packets for elementary students. Each product also has a sing-along video hosted on Raonna Studio’s YouTube (linked below).
