A Year of Charlotte Mason Music Lessons
Composer Study, Hymns, and Folk Songs
A Year of charlotte Mason Music Lessons provides you with a gentle way to do music in your homeschool, the Charlotte Mason way!
Each month, you'll focus on two things: Composer Study and either a Folk Song or a Hymn.
You'll actually listen to the same composer for three months in a row (one term) and hear a different piece each week so that your child can "study as far as possible under one master until they have received some of this teaching and know its style," as Charlotte Mason encouraged us to do.
You'll sing the same hymn or folk song for a full month.
So, that means three composers with twelve pieces/songs each, plus four hymns and five folk songs for the school year!
- Johann Sebastian Bach (September-November)
- Peter Tchaikovsky (December-February)
- George Gershwin (March-May)
- "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" (October)
- "In the Bleak Midwinter" (December)
- "Be Thou My Vision" (February)
- "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" (April)
- "Shenandoah" (September)
- "Over the River and Through the Woods" (November)
- "Alouette" (January)
- "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain" (March)
- "When the Saints Go Marching In" (May)
All videos are included so you can listen to the music for each lesson.
The Composer Study lessons contain some optional printable notebooking pages to use. The first three pages are perfect for younger students, and the last two pages are best for older students. Living book ideas are also included.
The Hymn Study lessons contain sheet music so you can sing or play the hymns, as well as copywork.
The Folk Song Study lessons contain copywork and links to lyrics and sheet music.
It will be a breeze for you to teach music the Charlotte Mason way this year!
