Music for the Middle School Classroom

One of my most popular posts ever was my Pandora Stations for the Middle School Classroom

I thought I would let you guys know about another gem that I found that my students LOVED!

Rhett Price on Youtube does violin covers of current popular songs. When my classes were doing independent work I would put his channel on a playlist in the background (just listening, not watching). It was awesome to see the students bopping along and singing to themselves as they worked. 

***Tip: Because my kids were so into these songs there was never a peep from anyone. If anyone dared to try to speak the rest of the class would shush them so they could keep listening. 

Here are a few of my students favorites:



  1. Cool! Lately, I've been playing Pentatonix for my middle school kids. I will definitely try this one out next year!!

  2. I love your blog and your TPT store. I linked to this post in my most recent blog post: http://davasmithenglishteacher.blogspot.com/2016/07/letters-to-new-english-teachers-post-3_12.html.
