Today I have just a quick followup to my post yesterday about homeschool music learning ideas. I really do believe that music appreciation begins at home. Exposing children to great music can influence the way they think and the way they see the world around them. So today my wonderful wife sent me a link to an award-winning homeschooling blog where a mom has found many great resources and brought them together. One of the resources that she has assembled is a study of the life and music of eight of the greatest composers in history. The course material is outlined as follows:
To use the course, the teacher/parent will also want to purchase the corresponding books for each composer from the series The World's Greatest Composers, by Mike Venezia. The curriculum designed by this homeschooling mom is designed to last a full year. She also has two versions for either an individual family, or a homeschool group study. The course materials are available at the Confessions of a Homeschooler Store. See the links below:
A freebie (at least as of the time of this post) is the additional unit study materials for Johannes Brahms. If you are a homeschooling parent looking for some ready-made music appreciation materials, this course just may be the right product for you.
Have any other resources that you think others would like to know about? Feel free to leave comments below.
