These are listed alphabetically, not by order of preference. I love SQUILT and Zeezok and we use Khan Academy for many learning options including music.

We have also used Harmony Fine Arts in the past and it’s a great companion to any chronological history study!

Plus I will often pull lesson ideas from Lesson Planet so it’s hard for me to say which would be my #1 or even #2 pick.

    2. Harmony Fine Arts (Combines composer studies with Artist studies in a Charlotte Mason Method).

What ways do you teach music or include music in your homeschool setting?

Whatever way you choose to teach music, whether as an “extra” or as an in-depth study know that music is a wonderful way to encourage a child to develop learning skills. Just listening to music can lead to inspiration and get the ol’ juices flowing. I love having it playing in the background because I think it helps my son to focus.

  1. Thanks for including all of these resources on music in homeschool. We are big believers in making sure that whatever types of music education occur in home, include musical engagement of some kind. Even composer studies can include engaging listening projects or opportunities for children to create their own music to highlight aspects of a composer’s style. You can check out some of our activities and projects to support music in homeschool on our site:

    1. Hey Thanks. I agree, music engagement is key to learning about music… even when studying facts, you are more likely to remember key information if accompanied by a musical example! — Thanks for adding an additional resource.

  2. Like food, music is a great way to get a flavor of a country. We travel a lot and so we make music study a part of prep for our journeys. We study artists and songs and music types that are famous or originated in our destination. It really makes music and travel both come alive! Next up is a trip to Greece and we are looking at the music there. Kids just love the experience and we often come back from a trip with a few CDs.
