The Confessional Post and a Guest

There are a few subjects I avoid when blogging. They include cooking, crafting and music. It's not that I can't cook, I just don't cook pretty foods or those blog worthy. Crafting hurts my brain, but I do admire the outcome. Last weekend my dear sister-in-law who attends a mega church told me I don't fit the mold of the homeschoolers she knows. I don't bake my own bread, if I did I would eat it in one sitting and have to create a weight loss blog., I don't have many kids, only 4, and they don't play multiple instruments. My idea of music education is using Zeezok study guides. When it comes to music, well, let's just say, I'm not qualified. So I'll leave that to the experts.

A Little Creativity Matters

I have spent mountains of time teaching music to children of all ages.  I LOVE it.  But, let me tell you something I’ve noticed... I’m sure you’ll enjoy.

Although I have spent 25 years working with other people’s children, I have also home-taught my own children to high levels of proficiency in music.  They were even actually professionally performing from age 6.  All this aside... I want to share my secret-sauce with you.

Kids don’t like to be bored to death.  And, I don’t like to be bored either.  So, when it’s time to come up with a 20 minute practice session all centered around the b minor Suite, my creative juices start flowing like a river.

I use story-telling, imagery, and tangible fun to accomplish amazing feats of education in short bursts of time.  Kids eat it up - because it doesn’t last too long.  And, I, as the home-educator leave the session rejuvenated and full of peppy-zest.
Successful home-learning takes positivity and enthusiasm.  These are things I choose very carefully for my own children, as I’m sure you do as well.
I’ve taken my love for teaching online and am currently helping hone musical skills in all ages around the globe.

Care to join me?  I’d love to give you some secret flute-sauce.  :)
