Ready to start a Instrument of the Month but don’t have a plan ready? Look no further! This file is a great way to start studying the viola, a member of the string family in the orchestra. This also makes a great contrast or compliment to composer of the month!
This set includes:
• Lesson Plans covering mini-lessons to presented at the beginning or end of your lesson as an “Instrument of the Month” activity.
• Bulletin Board printables including information about the instrument, definitions appropriate to the particular instrument (i.e. Bow, Musician, Orchestra, Chamber Music, etc.).
• YouTube links to engaging videos highlighting pieces featuring this instrument.
This set will get you with a Lesson Plan that is ready to print and yet can still be modified to suite your needs. The instrument units focus on a different instrument each month and the lesson takes about 5-10 minutes of the lesson time. I do the lesson at the very beginning of class and focus on listening, discussing music with appropriate terminology, and connecting music to the “real world.” Each lesson comes with detailed information and links to the YouTube videos used in the lesson.
In addition, you will also receive printouts for your bulletin boards with blank pages that can also be modified to suite your needs.

Each lesson plan includes standards that are checked off for the GPS (Georgia Performance Standards). I have also included alternative National Music Standards Checklists and National Core Arts Standards Checklists.
