Should Music be Part of our Curriculum?


As a virtual homeschooling mom, music is not a part of our required curriculum, but after reading today’s article, I think, perhaps, it should be.

I grew up with music.  I learned piano when I was very young.  That led eventually, to singing and band.  I began learning the trumpet in 4th grade and continued playing through high school—music was my passion as a student.

Today atHome School Toolbox, Marcia K. Washburn, answers the question “Why Should I Teach My Children Music?”.  This article is the first in a series she will be writing entitled “Music with Marcia”.


I am a Christian, Virtual/Homeschooling mom of 3 who loves helping my children realize those AWESOME "lightbulb" moments!

  1. Great thought – we always had music “class” when we were home-schooled, I think it’s a great addition!

  2. On the right margin of my home page under INSPIRATION, you’ll see the TED TALKS on creativity and the arts. It is WILD – so so well presented.
