Teaching music at your homeschool can be so easy
Can you play a musical instrument?
Did you know you don't have to be able to play a musical instrument to teach children how to play music?
When you homeschool, you tend to concentrate on the learning of certain subjects, sticking to curriculum and rarely having fun.
But teaching music to your homeschool kids can be childsplay.
By teaching them Music theory, ear training, technique and performance a whole new world of possibilities opens up to them. Like they say at Riff Academy "music can be the key to opening doors to amazing things."
Why should you teach music at your homeschool?
From years of research by top universities, psychologists and neurologists have found that learning music and arts has huge benefits for learning, self-esteem and social development.
Sadly, it is difficult for homeschool families to fit this into the busy homeschool schedule and daily routines.
with the Riff Academy music curriculum for homeschool (just want to add here that I'm not an affiliate with them, just love them ;-)) there is no need for your child -or you- to leave home, because you have to drive to an expensive, weekly session that lasts 30 minutes. Wasting valuable time and money. You don't drive out petrol and they don't get only 4 lessons per month.
How can you teach music at your homeschool?
By going to the following website: riff academy (if you did not yet click on the link above.)
They have a specially designed curriculum and interactive media player that accommodates all computers, tablets and mobile devices which makes it easy for your children to take their music lesson when, where and as often as it suits them.
Because they do not limit the number of times your child can view a lesson, your child can do the same lesson until they are certain they understand it.
There is also a printable pdf version of each lesson which you can download.

But not all kids are the same
Kids learn at their own pace and each kid is different. That is why having guitar lessons for your kid personally is a great way for them to learn on their own individual level at their own individual pace.
But then you have to drive to someone for your weekly lessons, right?
Wrong. I have the best option for you. It is called Gentle Guitar.
Is your homeschooling child between 5 to 12? Then Gentle Guitar is your answer to online guitar lessons especially for your child because they receive lessons one on one through Skype.
Not sure if this is right for your child?
Why not try a FREE lesson and see if it will work for you? Just click here.
You as a parent have to be present during the lesson which I think is great because when you drop them off at music lessons, you don't know what they learned and what they should practice. This way you also know the value of the lessons you're paying for.
Do you agree...
That this is great news? One of our biggest obstacles when teaching more than one child in different grades is not being able to attend to all of them at the same time. While you are busy with one child and the other is waiting for you, why not let them go through their music lesson so long?
