"I've already written about how much we love Gena Mayo's 20th Century Music Appreciation course. Now her 15-Minute Music Lesson Course makes it even easier to learn about music. The music videos, the printables, and the quizzes are all accessible from the safe, user-friendly Teachable platform. But what I love most is that my kids and I can have fun learning about music whenever we have 15 minutes." ~Melanie Wilson, Author at Psychowith6.com and GrammarGalaxyBooks.com, homeschooling mom of 6

"Our family loves 15 Minute Music Lessons for Elementary Students--even my hardest to please child! My children have been asking to do them nearly every day. They have even asked to do them before bedtime if we didn't get to it during school hours! We are experiencing music that we otherwise might have missed. Our appreciation for music and it's history is growing as well. Thank you for creating this course! We look forward to the next one!" ~Tara Wohlford, blogger at Minivan Ministries and homeschooling mom of 3.

"I have three children, ages 12, almost 9 and a four year old. I heard them either humming or singing the songs while I was nearby, it was cute. I think this curriculum can go farther than elementary. Most adults do not know or remember some of information given. Thank you! Smile." ~T.C., mom of 3

"I wasn't sure if this music teaching method would work for us since I have a 9,7,6,5 and they are so different in their individual learning styles and interest. It was great being able to try out the Patriotic Music Lesson for free. It really allowed me to see how my kids would receive this teaching method and not waste money on another curriculum that wouldn't be used. My kids thoroughly enjoyed watching the short videos and having discussion as we went thru the lesson. They enjoyed sharing their favorite songs and then taking the quiz as a family. Afterwords I sent them to do the worksheet together; the older kids helping the younger ones. I giggled because they were humming and singing the songs to help answers the questions. That is what made me decide to sign up for the Elementary 15-Minute Music Lessons. Thank you for taking the time in putting together this lesson which is done so well. The kids and I enjoyed it very much." ~L.S., mom of 4
