Have you considered the benefits of teaching music in your homeschool? Most of the time when you think of a music class, you find yourself wondering what instrument your child is going to play. Yet, there is so much more to music than just learning how to play an instrument. Not everyone is musically inclined, thankfully there are plenty of homeschool music curriculum options available for anyone to use!

Twenty years ago, not only was homeschool a foreign word, but there was nothing out there. Back then you’d find very little curriculum and even less support. Now with homeschooling on the rise, the choices are limitless and there are support groups and co-ops everywhere.

Music class can be intimidating. 

What if I can’t sing a lick?

What if I don’t know A from D?

Have no fear! There are some amazing music curriculum choices out there for every level of teacher and student. There are also a wide range of price points available to choose from too. From {free} to hundreds of dollars, there is a music curriculum to meet your needs!

Summary

Even though this is a web-based lesson program, I have heard rave reviews about it. The piano lessons are simple, easy and at home. They are fairly short – no more than 10 minutes – and very fun for the kids. They can learn piano at home on their time and schedule. Some weeks you may have time for multiple lessons, while other weeks you can only do one. The reviews I’ve read say kids are begging to do these.

Getting started with music in your homeschool, is just like any other subject – you have to just do it! Yes, it may feel strange or uncomfortable at first, but it will get easier and as a bonus…you will be learning along side them, which I think is so fun!
