I fall into this category. When it comes to music, I am woefully illiterate.
I love singing and I enjoy music from many genres, but I am totally clueless. When one of my children expressed an interest in learning more about music, I knew I needed help.
Two of our children are now participating in our local children’s choir, but I was still looking for something to use within our home. You can imagine my thrill to have the opportunity to review the Music Appreciation for the Elementary Grades curriculum from Zeezok Publishing.
I was blown away from the moment I opened the box with our books and CDs. Wonderful literature, beautiful music, engaging activities, what more could a homeschool parent ask for? Zeezok music appreciation curriculum has been a hit for everyone in our home!
Homeschool Music Appreciation with Zeezok
The Music Appreciation for the Elementary Grades curriculum covers seven composers dating from 1685 to 1828 (Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Paganini and Schubert).
The set includes the following resources:
- 5 Music CDs
- 7 Composer Biographies
- Student Activity Book
- CD with Lapbook Components
Zeezok Music Appreciation makes it so easy for any parent to teach music appreciation regardless of your musical background. And it should come as no surprise since Zeezok Publishing was founded by other committed homeschoolers.
This two-year music curriculum was created for use with students in grades K-6. As a mother of five children, the more learning we can do together the better! The set comes with one student activity book and you will want to purchase activity books for any additional children.
More Reasons to Love Zeezok Music Appreciation
Being able to use this curriculum with multiple children and with no previous musical knowledge are just a couple of the great benefits from Zeezok. Here are a few more reasons I’ve found the Music Appreciation for the Elementary Grades Set to be an outstanding homeschool resource:
Ease of Use – There is little to no teacher prep required. Outside of science experiments and recipes, you can “open and go” with this curriculum.
Learning Styles – Are you teaching students with different learning styles? Zeezok has put together composer studies that will appeal to your visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners.
Cross-Curricular Learning – With Zeezok Music Appreciation, your lessons will have you studying music, geography, history, science, character traits, and more!
Hands-on Activities – Incorporating hands-on activities is something that is really important to me as a homeschool mom. The colorful workbook includes a variety of hands-on learning experiences and the lapbook component keeps young hands busy as well.
