Welcome to Music in Our Homeschool!

I started this site in 2015 because I realized a need in the homeschool community. Homeschool moms were searching for the best music education resources for their kids.

Some moms didn’t even know where to start. What’s out there? How to teach it? Private lessons? Online courses? Books? CDs? Videos? So many questions!

Who am I?

Gena Mayo fall 2023

My name is Gena Mayo, and I’m a homeschool mom. My 8 children are ages 23 down to 11, and I’ve homeschooled from the beginning.

I’m also a music teacher. I went to Baylor University in Waco, Texas and graduated with a Bachelor of Music Education degree in 1995. Then, I taught junior high choir and elementary general music for 5 years at a couple of public schools in Texas and received my Masters in Music degree in vocal pedagogy (teaching voice lessons).

I’m also certified by Musikgarten to teach early childhood music and movement classes.

I have taught music continually since 1995 in various forms: choir; show choir; Musikgarten classes for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers; musical theater classes; private and semi-private voice lessons; music appreciation and music history classes at our homeschool co-op; and vocal directing full-length musicals.

I have encouraged and supported my children in their many musical endeavors: private lessons in piano, voice, violin, clarinet, percussion, saxophone, and guitar; choir; band; music appreciation and recorder class at homeschool co-op; competitions and recitals; musicals through Christian Youth Theater; auditioned vocal ensemble; and more!

I love music, and I want to share my passion with others!
