Teaching Beginning Piano In Your Homeschool

These days my homeschool has been sort of evolving into a mesh of bible, art, and music with a good dose of math and language arts at the core.  (History and science feel more like electives to us lately).

We’ve been focusing more on music recently since I really believe it’s important to tap into my children’s main interests (around the 9 minute mark in the video I talk about gifts and talents)…and music is definitely one of them.  (I’ll have a post all about our art adventures soon).

Anyhow, I thought I would share some of our music time together and how we incorporate piano lessons into our regular homeschool day. (My oldest is now officially enrolled in a music school in town, but I still *get* to oversee her lessons at home).

How about you?  Do you include music in your homeschool?  What instruments do your children play (or want to play)?

In this video I share some ideas about teaching piano to young children.

    Demetria,

    We will be statring piano lessons in our home next month. I am going to teach my children the basics and we’ll go as far as we can before I move them to outside instruction. I have a clarinet and flute (both of which I also played) sitting in my closet waiting for my oldest two, because we haven’t found teachers yet. Hopefully, they’ll be able to get started soon using those soon.

      Sounds like your kids are off to a great start with music instruction with mom helping them. It’s great that you can play more than one instrument! My husband plays guitar so I’m depending on him to help the kids with that. Have fun with the music instruction. Isn’t it great having a noisy house? :-)
