Homeschool Music Study made easy
When it comes to homeschooling, your children may miss out if they are not studying the arts. If you’re not a musician yourself, it may be difficult to add that to your curriculum. However, the internet is making homeschool music study easy for you.
When I homeschooled my boys, we belonged to a homeschool club. It was so cool to be able to take your kids to the club once a week where they could make friends and do things we don’t usually offer at a home school. They did things like painting, making little sculptures, pottery, flower arranging, woodwork and we even did athletics and swimming like they do at school. But usually music stayed behind because it’s different.
Luckily, I am a music teacher. Our homeschool music study was a musical for a whole term and everything else was tied to it: Mathematics, English, Social Studies, you name it. I also got quite a few private students from there.
But how can you do the same?

When you know your child is good at music, and they have chosen an instrument, there are other options. These options below are programs that are specifically made for homeschoolers. Below are DVD lessons for piano or guitar.
Learn piano or guitar
Another option is to go for a live online teacher. It works like this: You choose an instrument, and the teacher sends you the first lesson on video, explaining and demonstrating what you have to do. Your child looks at the lesson, and then practices until they feel they’re ready. You then take a video of your child playing on your phone or camcorder, upload it to the computer, and send it to the teacher. The teacher sends a video back with comments on how to improve, and when your child is ready, the teacher sends the next lesson. The lessons are cheaper because the teacher had to record it once, and then only has to do video comments about your playing.
