I have a tin ear. I can’t play an instrument, except for very, very, easy piano melodies. Yet, I LOVE music and I appreciate how easy it is to learn if music is part of the learning process. Need to learn history dates? If they’re in a song, no problem! Need to learn math facts–put them to notes, and it’s a breeze.
Using music in your homeschooling will make education fun and entertaining, and the important information will stick–plus, in a way, you’ll be teaching music at the same time. You can even choose what type of music you’d like to use in your lessons–sing song, a pop melody, or even rap/hip hop.
You can find resources for teaching with music at the following web locations:
This last link shows kids that have made their own songs and subsequent videos–what a great learning experience! My own son made a number of videos when he was in high school. They were humorous in nature, but they were a learning experience none the less. After looking at the above link, I think we missed the boat. We should have made some educational videos as well!
Because remember–fun learning is forever learning!
