Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Marcia McCarry, Professional Voice Teacher. Over the course of 45 years, I’ve offered private training to over 4,000 students of all ages, from the child in pre-school to retired mature adults.
Some years ago I realized that I needed to create my own teaching materials. My love for teaching wasn’t enough. After years of searching, I had never found just the right materials to use in my studio. I knew that if my students of all ages were to learn to sing well that I would need to write my own program for my students, and I did!

"During Advent, we also light our advent wreath each day, and make a point of learning traditional Christmas hymns. When we practice hymns and carols at home, my children are more confident singing with the congregation at church. I also notice that they hum and sing the songs we learn during the day and when they’re playing. I love that our time spent learning to sing together enriches their lives beyond Morning Time!
This makes Christmas Carols Made Easy a great fit for our Advent morning time plans. We’ll use this simple singing curriculum to learn traditional (and international) Christmas carols from around the world and develop our singing ability at the same time."

By the way, are you looking for a Music & Fine Arts Membership experience?
The Music in Our Homeschool Plus (MIOH+) membership experience for Preschool - High School will be open for enrollment from January 14-21, 2022.
"If you have any musicians in your family you can even sing and play together using the included accompaniments. It would be such a fun way to learn new Christmas songs together.
Even if you have no prior singing background, like me, this course was very easy to follow and understand. I’m actually very excited to learn more about Music in Our Homeschool’s other courses and how we can incorporate them into our homeschool lessons."
~ Emily Allison of Our Little Slice of Heaven
"These selections may seem a bit intimidating, but the instruction makes them much more approachable! I love the idea of selecting a couple of songs to work on with my kids this year. The course has lifetime access, so we can select a couple more next year (and the next). I love the idea of creating a family tradition of learning and singing special Christmas songs each year!"

"What Is Unique About This Course?
For one, it introduces you and your entire family to singing carols from around the world. Yes, carols that are in different languages. While you may be very good at singing carols in English, do you know how to correctly pronounce and sing carols in different languages?
In this course, not only does Gena teach you how to sing carols in French, German and other languages, but she also systematically walks you through the pronunciation as well."
