In this post I want to introduce you to six very easy ways in which, you can add music to your homeschool. 

Besides the ideas, I will also be giving you specific information on the different resources you can make use of, in order to make music in your homeschool a reality. 

Let’s get to it then,

Teach An Instrument

Yes, it is as simple as that. Have your kids learn to play an instrument in the homeschool. 

Now, this doesn’t have to be very expensive. On the contrary it can be quite reasonably priced, especially if you can find a quality online program.

While there is no limit to the number of instruments your kids can learn in the homeschool, some of the most popular ones are learning to play the recorder, piano, ukulele and guitar.

Want to know what specific courses I would recommend? Then you will definitely enjoy reading my post about the 5 Best Elementary Music Courses For Kids.

Teach Movement

Yes, teaching movement and dancing is another great way to add music to your homeschool. 

Read this post to get some of my recommendations for the Top 10 Dance Classes On YouTube. Most of these courses are FREE and therefore should not put pressure on your family budget. 


Teach Music Appreciation

Do you know music appreciation is one of the easiest areas of music to teach even if you are a homeschool parent with no real background in music?

With music history, you can pick a theme like a composer, instruments of the orchestra, eras in music etc, and get started. 

Want help on how to add composer studies, or instrument studies to your homeschool routine, then my posts on 6 Ways To Incorporate Instrument Studies In Your Homeschool and 4 ‘Unimginably’ Easy Ways To Incorporate Composer Studies Into Your Homeschool Curriculum.


Watch A Musical

Yes, it can be as simple as that. 

First you create a list of age appropriate musicals. 

Next, start sourcing them. You can look on Amazon or Netflix for the musicals, or borrow them from the local library. 

Schedule a specific day of each month, clear out the calendar on that day for the entire family and make that your night to watch the musical with the whole family. 

Rinse and repeat every month. 

If your budget allows, you can even try to take in a live performance if there’s one showing, in your community.

Have A Theme Month

You can pick a musical theme to explore each month of the year. 

Here are some ideas to help get those creative juices flowing. 

– Composer of the month

– Instrument of the month

– Musical genre of the month

– Musical era of the month

So what do you think? Are these ideas doable? Aren’t they ‘super easy’? Which one will you be implementing today?

My daughter loved the games, but there were also worksheets and videos. The weekly lesson plans were complete, and I never questioned what I should be doing next.

Play Piano Today!

Teach your child to play piano, today.

Yes, in as little as 30 minutes I can show you how to teach your child to play the piano, for FREE.

What are you waiting for?

This program reminded me (and allowed me to teach my son) how to read music. To me, that was the most important thing that we learned together. Of course, it was very rewarding for me to watch my son play the piano with both hands at the same time, while reading sheet music. His favorite parts of the course were actually playing the songs and doing the worksheets provided.
