Homeschool Help: Music Curriculum

musicWhen I started homeschooling 5 years ago, I didn’t know what to teach for music. I didn’t know how to play any musical instrument and I only knew the basics of music theory. So I decided to teach music theory to my 1st grader based on what I have studied before. Fast forward, my daughter knows how to play the keyboard and read notes. Though I don’t take any credit for that since she basically learned it on her own.

But as a homeschool mom, where do you begin? Teaching music should be fun and practical, but it should also help your children understand the dynamics of music.

I’m listing down some of the beneficial links to help you teach music theory to your children.
