In the nine Study Units (Understanding Music, 19th Century American Music, 20th Century American Folk Music, Country & Western, Jazz, Blues, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Rap/Hip-hop, and Musical Theatre), there are a wide range of teaching resources. From the “overviews”, which give an abbreviated visual survey which can augment your lectures, to the Study Qs, which are chapter study questions in printable pdf format, to the printable crossword puzzles and other resources, AmPopMusic is a valuable tool for students’ study and for professors’ lecture augmentation or student evaluation.
While AmPopMusic is designed as a college general music history course online etext, we are delighted to make the etext also available to public high school music classes.
Public school music teachers are eligible to purchase classroom licenses which provides individual accounts for students enrolled in a public school music class at a highly reduced per user rate. These classroom licenses are for a full school year and available for different size classes. The purchase of a classroom license also includes an account for the teacher as “group leader” of their class, allowing them to monitor their students’ activity and progress.
We’d love to share how AmPopMusic can be part of your music classroom. For more information, contact AmPopMusic by clicking here.
