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 is her desire to help all homeschoolers include music in their homeschools.
I wish I could have used your courses with our children as we did school at home. We are a music loving family and it would have been a gift to them to broaden their experiences with your lessons. However, the youngest of 6 is a freshman in college this year - off on his own musical adventures.
When I came across your courses, I invested in the first one as a resource to use with my piano students. I expect to continue to do that from time to time. I have enjoyed going through them for my own education and enjoyment.
Probably the most significant use is one I still anticipate. We will become grandparents this spring, and my thoughts have drifted toward what kinds of things I want to have available for the next generation. The simplicity of what you provide, the easy access to the music via the Internet, and the number of lessons you provide in a course all speak to my heart. Your musical choices take me outside the normal music I find on my own. It helps me explore with a little less investment of time.
"This year's music study is so much better with your curriculum! Thanks!"
"We've been using the 20th century music course and we are really enjoying it. It was exactly what I was looking for to go along with our study of the 20th century. I was trying to put all of the resources together myself, but it was a lot of work. So, this has been worth the money!
