Music Appreciation Resources for Teaching Homeschool

Music appreciation is one of those subjects. But in homeschooling, we can embrace these subjects. That’s why I’m bringing you this music appreciation resources list.

Books to Use as a Guide for Music Appreciation for Homeschool

I suggest using these books to guide YOU the homeschool teacher, not to give to your kids for them to read without some context.

Books to Learn about the Lives of Great Composers

Discovering composers and the lives of the composers does have it’s place. However reading about them shouldn’t replace learning about their work through listening. For example, if your child is reading an historical non-fiction book about Schubert they should also be listening to compositions by Schubert.
