      Hi Gwendolyn, this is a new question for me – so I have a few suggestions but as far as I know these resources haven’t been tried out in Oregon yet. I recommend checking out a book from Kansas State University: Vocal Techniques for the Instrumentalist at There are a few additional options for music theory and music appreciation if you browse the Open Textbook Library under “arts”: There are also modules in OER Commons from Carnegie Hall designed for k-12 that you may be able to adapt: Last, I recommend talking with a librarian at your own institution for more help. Good luck! Amy
