Teacher and student image

"The curriculum is amazing. It is on a par with the best arts integration curriculum available. It was a godsend because there's nothing else available like it that specifically covers North Carolina music and history." P. WILBUR, MUSIC TEACHER, ARTS BASED (CHARTER) SCHOOL, WINSTON-SALEM, REFERRING TO THE MUSIC CLASS UNIT, WRITING PROMPTS, AND THE DOC WATSON 4TH GRADE SOCIAL STUDIES/LANGUAGE ARTS UNIT
