Palamai Music and Recording Arts (PMRA) provides educators tools and resources that can help motivate students regardless of the class/subject. By leveraging existing standards you may be using, PMRA can help you show the importance of your class and what you are teaching, to the students passion for music and their music education (if you are not the music teacher).

This diagram shows an example of a cross subject  alignment of a music standard (from NAfME), ELA standard (from Common Core) and a science standard (from NGSS).
