The Musician of the Month Project depends on content generated by music educators worldwide to grow our database! To contribute a unit to our website, please fill out the Display and Unit Template and send it as an attachment to email@example.com.
To use the template you can MAKE A COPY (if you are logged into a Google Account) or Download the file and edit it on your own device.
Please note that units will be reviewed and may be edited by our editorial team before publication on our website. Authorship will be recognized on each unit, but the unit will be available, free-of-charge, on the MotM in perpetuity.
