Greek Myths in Modes includes all the materials needed to make the ancient Greek myths come alive. The book contains master scores, scripts, images, and extensive lesson plan suggestions. The online supplemental materials files contain images, instrument parts, full color visuals and student/actor script. High quality audio files of the songs and instrumental pieces are included as well. This collection is offered as a way to enter the mythical, magical world of Greek kings and heroes. Because these ageless stories provide opportunities for invention and collaboration, they also invite dramatization, and this powerful amalgam makes for memorable learning experiences. The Greek myths in this book have been adapted for use through music, movement, speech play, and modes in an open-ended, elemental style.

The dramas were developed in contrasting styles to be used as separate units, or as complementary groupings for longer programmatic use.  They provide a vibrant, wholly accessible entrance into Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, and Pentatonic scales.
