"We are members of MIOH+ and we love it! SO many great resources included. We especially love and use the Monthly Calendar as part of our morning time together! The calendar contains such a fun variety of lessons that you can pick and choose from and even correlate with monthly events/holidays-so cool! For us, the daily lessons are short, sweet and zero-prep for me. . . which I love and need lol!! Thank you Gena Mayo!!💜"

–J., homeschool mom

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

"I should be doing music in my homeschool, but don't have time or energy to add ONE MORE THING to my homeschool."

To achieve your goal of music ed in your homeschool, simply do a minimum of one lesson per week!

As a homeschooling mom myself, I know that...

  • it's hard to find time for music
  • many moms don't have the expertise to teach music
  • some programs and lessons are too expensive for the homeschool budget
  • and other music programs are BORING or too hard for kids and/or Mom

Let's face it--there's nothing more frustrating than trying to do it all, only to feel like you're never quite enough and never actually giving your kids the full homeschooling experience you want them to have. And there's nothing more disheartening than buying yet another curriculum--only to have languish on the shelf unused because you have no time to prep for it or even include it in the school day.

You know that you should be giving your kids the most excellent education possible. Maybe you've even tried a music online course or two.

And yet, it's not quite working.

There's no time to figure out how to use yet one more curriculum. You have enough to simply teach reading, writing, and math every day. Money is tight, so there's no way to add private music lessons to the budget. And, you know nothing about music yourself and can't possibly fathom how you could possibly teach your kids music.

Other people make homeschooling look easy. But for you, it's been anything but. You thought that the hard part was going to picking out the right curriculum, but as it turns out, that was only just the beginning. And now you feel like you must be missing something.

And you're not alone. Most homeschool moms who truly care are.

The truth is that having a high-quality homeschool course is a game changer, one that will teach the kids for you, require no prep time from you, and even do it in only 15 minutes a day!

The problem? Most homeschool music curricula often make achieving a music education for your homeschool more trouble than it's worth.

But what if there was a way to make sure you got it right?

Gena Mayo
Gena Mayo

Gena Mayo is a homeschooling mom of 8 who has been teaching music in various forms for over 25 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 include music in their homeschools!


CONSIDER WHAT'S POSSIBLE...

Imagine having a joyful homeschool where music is included every week. You're learning along with the kids, and it's fun and easy!

We'll teach you how to schedule the short lessons into your homeschool week and use them with all the kids!

With the help of this membership, you CAN include music even if you have no musical knowledge yourself.

And, the price?

It costs less per month for your whole family than ONE private music lesson!

I'll give you

  • A no-prep, click-and-go lesson on the calendar for each day of the month (also comes in your weekly email for even more ease!)
  • A wide variety of FUN lessons for multiple ages

Yes, your kids will learn and grow, mom will feel successful in finally adding music education, kids will make connections between music and other subjects (such as history, geography, science, art, and literature), and older kids can do the lessons independently.

Not sure how to fit it in? No problem.

I created Music in Our Homeschool Plus so homeschool moms can be the rockstar homeschoolers they desire to beand give their kids the absolute best music education possible!

After enrolling in the membership, simply choose your lesson of the week.

Will you do the lesson of the day on the calendar or work through a course?

Schedule it in:

  • Morning Basket Time
  • Loop Schedule
  • Music Mondays
  • Fine Arts Fridays.

Do it each week! You're successful!

 

"I homeschool my kids 5, 11, and 13 with the Charlotte Mason method. We just love music and enjoy learning all different kinds. That has been one of our favorite things about the CM method, exposing us to music I didn't grow up listening to. I have enjoyed the classes of yours that I bought, which is why I joined [the membership]. We do at least one weekly afternoon tea time and listen to your music units during that time and other times throughout the week. I'm happy to be here!"

–A. from New England

INTRODUCING MUSIC IN OUR HOMESCHOOL PLUS (MIOH+)

The Music Education Membership that will help you add music to your homeschool in only 15 minutes a day!

MIOH+ is an extremely easy-to-use, click-and-go membership for homeschoolers designed to help you add music education, so that your kids will have the basis for any music they may want to pursue later in life. And, if they don't do anything else with music, it will have given them the well-rounded homeschool education you desire them to have!

Music in Our Homeschool Plus was originally created to help struggling homeschool moms achieve ease with adding music because I've been where you are -- a homeschool mom who's trying to do it all and knows there is never enough time or energy.

If you are a homeschooler desiring to include an excellent music education in your homeschool, or if you are looking for something fun and easy to use, this is an opportunity that I promise you will not want to miss.

This course is closed for enrollment until January 2023. Sign up for the Waitlist!

"I just wanted to share that my kids have Autism. I have 8 with 5 on the spectrum. I've been struggling to fit in actual teaching that will have meaning about music. I've been eyeing your lessons for a while, and when I saw the offer I knew I had to do this. The "White Christmas" lesson had history, the video and a coloring page. Those things tied it in for even my youngest, who struggle with spoken language but can sing. Because of all this, is the reason why you have seen me all over the place praising and talking about your materials!"

–Dana D.

WHAT SETS MIOH+ APART?

You don't need to know how to teach music to use it!

I KNOW you don't have time to learn the material before you teach it to your kids. Who has time for that?

That's why I do all the teaching for you!

Just click "play" and read the lesson together, watch/listen to the music, do an online quiz. It couldn't be easier!

New calendar each month!

One of the most popular features of the membership is the curated monthly calendar of music lessons. Each day you can click and watch the 15-minute music lesson day to learn about a composer, a musical concept, or music related to the holiday or special day.

The lesson links also arrive in your email inbox once a week, giving you another super easy way to simply click-and-go!

"I can't wait to access the other courses. I already bought the Shakespeare one and the Middle Ages to Classical a while ago, and they are fab! Thank you so much! I am a music teacher (piano mostly at the moment) but I use a lot of your units for my daughter's homeschool work, lol! Sometimes as complete studies and sometimes as a jumping off point. It works really well for us."

–Claire from Prince Edward Island

Video Testimonial From Kristin E.

"I honestly don't think I'd make the time to teach my children music if I didn't have Music in Our Homeschool because you get so busy as a homeschool mom and things just get crowded out. And so now I have it. I intentionally have a plan to use it. I use it on a weekly basis!"

A Look Inside the Membership

Take a look at what you get in the membership dashboard. It's so easy to use!

"Music is (one of 😊) the subjects that has fallen off our schedule this fall. So we are spending some time on our Fun Friday to learn about hand signs and solfege syllables without @musicinourhs membership! Without this membership, we would be lost in trying to incorporate some music education!"

"Hi, I'm a home school mama to four kids; my first is an adult now and my youngest is seven! My daughter started singing before she talked in sentences and music still runs through her blood. Music is such an international language! Recently, I read this article about the importance of music on our brains. It made me regret that my oldest never had any music lessons. I just came across MIOH this week and purchased it. ... Thank you for this course, Gena. I'm excited to incorporate it into our home school."
