Homeschool mom, are you struggling with including music in your homeschool since you don't know much about music yourself? Do you wish you had learned how to read music or at least could tell the difference between a clarinet and an oboe? Is it frustrating that you can't answer the basic music questions your kids ask you related to their new piano piece or a song they hear on the radio?
Then, you are going to LOVE the brand new Music 101 for Homeschool Moms Workshop!
Get the basics of music so you’ll feel more confident helping your kids learn this subject this year!
Each day’s class is around 40-60 minutes long.
Included is a workbook that you can share with your kids to help them learn, too!
Learn the basics of reading music. You’ll get a jump-start on music note names, rhythms, and time signatures, as well as other music symbols and terms! Understand how music is put together and what a person needs to know in order to read music at first sight.
Today we’ll get an overview of music history from the Middle Ages (450 A.D.) through modern times. Learn about the eras of music history as well as the most famous composers and musical pieces from each time period. We’ll listen to some of the music and also talk about the new musical advances that occurred in each era.
Get a basic knowledge of musical instruments, the five families of instruments, special instruments that are unique to particular countries and areas of the world, and which instruments are played for different genres or styles of music!
BONUS! Day 4:
I ran out of time to teach about Modern Music History (1900-present day) on Day 2, so we did a bonus session!
The Music 101 for Homeschool Moms Workshop includes a printable workbook so homeschool moms can take notes and even share the information with their kids later on!
