The 3 Musicals:

3. Irving Berlin's White Christmas
Check out the FREE Preview lesson:
What you get with each week's lessons:
- Information about the composers and lyricists
- Background of the musical
- Synopsis of the story
- List of songs in the musical
- Several songs to watch for each musical
- A musical concept lesson for each musical
- An online quiz
- Embedded video performance of the entire musical to watch
- Additional (optional) resources to extend your learning (books to read, additional movie versions to watch, art lessons to do, etc.)
How long is each lesson?
It ranges from 15 minutes (if you just do the reading about the musical and watching of the songs)
to 3 hours if you include watching the entire musical. Do I hear "Family Movie Night?" 🤶🏻
You could even spend more time if you'd like to read the book A Christmas Carol, add in art lessons, and/or watch several different versions of the movies/musicals to compare them.
What age is the course geared to?
Upper elementary through high school.
Note: Since every family is different in what you deem appropriate for your kids to watch or read, you may want to preview all videos and websites ahead of time (and definitely the full musical since every director will do things a little differently). I did feel the embedded videos within the course were appropriate for middle-school aged children, and most are appropriate for elementary-aged children.
"This is amazing! After 12 years of homeschooling, we've done all the Christmas carols, antiphons, and hymns already. This is the perfect holiday resource for my musical theater loving family."
Gena Mayo is a homeschooling mom of 8 who has been teaching music in various forms for 30 years. She has a Bachelors degree in Music Education and a Masters degree in Vocal Pedagogy (teaching voice lessons). It has been her joy to teach elementary and junior high choir, high school voice classes, private voice lessons for teens through adults, early childhood music and movement classes (babies through preschool), elementary general music, and music appreciation for elementary through high school. But, her favorite music teaching experience has been as musical director for stage musicals such as Seussical, Shrek, Singing in the Rain, Newsies, and Beauty and the Beast. It is Gena's desire to help all homeschoolers easily include music in their homeschools!
“I love how easy and fun Gena makes it to incorporate learning about Christmas musicals during the holiday season!”
