Approach it from a Period perspective. Teach a composer from different music periods and then play recordings from those composers and have them guess which composer that falls under. Also an opportunity to teach a little history. All in bits and pieces. I'm sure your principal would appreciate the some history and geography thrown in.
These lessons may seem to take away from "the instrument" but we are more than instrument teachers and most of these kids won't go on to play after high school. But these lessons sometimes stick with them and make them lifelong music supporters.
