A few days ago I shared about 3 Free Ways to Add Music Appreciation to an Already Busy Homeschool Day. I hope you enjoyed those three freebies. Have you already tried some of it with your kids?
As a homeschool mom of 8 and music teacher of 21 years I’ve found some creative ways to include music in our homeschool. Today’s post explores this further by connecting music appreciation to another subject–history!
You are going to teach American history for sure, but you don’t think you can teach music appreciation as well. It’s too hard, you don’t know what to teach, it takes too much time. I can just hear you now. 🙂
But I’m here to tell you that it isn’t true. I have some awesome lessons to give you today that will truly enrich your students’ American history study with only a few minutes a day. They are appropriate for grades K-12.
Download 5 FREE Music Lessons for 20th Century American Music Appreciation and you and your students will receive:
- John Phillip Sousa (Marches) lesson
- Scott Joplin (Ragtime) lesson
- George Gershwin (Songs, Rhapsody in Blue) lesson
- Leonard Bernstein (Orchestral & Choral Music, Musicals) lesson
- John Williams (Movie Scores) lesson
- 2 Printable Notebooking Pages
- Bibliography for further study
Included are all the links to the music to listen to! Have fun with it.
