With the end of the school year approaching, lesson plans for next year might be the last thing on your mind. Instead, you may be daydreaming about all the places you'd like to explore during summer break.


Why not combine your desire for travel with practical planning for next year? Encore Tours' eBook with 15 lesson plans integrates the NCCAS' core music standards into lesson plans to teach through music travel!
