I’d love to introduce you today to a wonderful new way to teach music to your kids at home: Enrichment Studies. What you do is purchase a subscription to one of the Composer or Fine Art Pages collections.
There is so much jam-packed into each collection that it can easily take you a year to get through it all! Also, you get to “keep” your links indefinitely, so you can revisit at any time.
Why Enrichment Studies Started
Erica Johns is the creator of Enrichment Studies.
Here is what she says about it: “I needed a straightforward, no-planning-required way to share more about classical music and the fascinating composers behind the music, without adding more hours to my teaching schedule, or costing a lot of money.”
And she has succeeded!
Review of Composer Collection
I got to review Composer Collection #2, which includes the following composers: Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud, Edvard Grieg, Franz Liszt, Gustav Holst, Camille Saint-Saens, Dmitri Shostakovich, Johann Strauss II, Erik Satie, Claude Debussy, Antonin Dvorak, Gabriel Faure, and Sergei Prokofiev.
My kids and I looked at the Dvorak page first, but will be using all the rest as we go through this next year of homeschooling. (It’s on my schedule during Morning Group Time.) On the Dvorak page, there is such a variety of activities to choose from: podcasts, activity sheets, websites to visit, a musical timeline to put together, YouTube videos, downloadable music, and a stream of Dvorak music to listen to. I was very impressed. 🙂 My little guys especially liked watching the YouTube videos where you could watch the conductor and instrumentalists/vocalists. I liked that I didn’t have to search for everything to find the best examples!
Be sure to check out Enrichment Studies to see if it would be a good fit for your family. You can see what collections are available, read the FAQs, and if you’re a homeschool blogger, find out how to partner with them. Also, just for signing up on the home page, you get 3 FREEBIES:
