How to Add Music to Your Homeschool Co-op
Are you part of a homeschool co-op? Would you like to add some music to your students’ experiences there? I’m happy to share some ideas today to help you add music to your homeschool co-op!
First, you can Teach an Instrument. Find a teacher in your area who loves to teach music to groups. Some options include recorder, guitar, piano, and choir. A book that is helpful for teaching recorder is Teach Your Family to Play the Soprano Recorder. She even includes special pricing for groups.
A second option is to have an Early Childhood Music and Movement Class (think Kindermusik or Musikgarten). I’ve been teaching these for the nursery and preschool classes at our co-ops for the past 4 years. Not only is it fun for young kids to play rhythm instruments, sing, and dance, it helps to grow their brains’ neural pathways in a way only music can.
Third, you can teach Music Appreciation or Music History. Here are just 3 of the many options out there that can help a mom who isn’t even musical to lead a class of this sort:
Or you can teach a high school level music theory class.
