Never before has such an amazing composition been combined with such deep and rich curricula.  This five movement Integrated Thematic Instructional Unit is designed challenge your students musically, academically and personally. Each of the movements are paired with curricula centered around leadership and character development. The musical and curricular elements are designed to go hand in hand to provide them with an experience like no other.

Conceived and created to foster critical thinking skills and meaningful discussions, musical and otherwise, these materials are ties to the Common Core Standards related to reading, writing, music, art, and critical thinking skills. In addition to the curricula, we have provided sample grading rubrics, community letters and so much more.  Each movement and corollary assignment can stand on their own, allowing the director the flexibility of using as much or as little as they want of the music and the curricula.


The initial print run is limited to just 25 copies. All limited edition scores will be signed by Scott and Richard.
