I’ve always had a passion for music. At the age of five I fell in love with the piano and and thus began my love affair with music.
As a mom, I was eager to share that passion with my children from the moment they were born. Their nursery always echoed of classical music playing on the radio. And naturally, they’ve grown to love music as well.
And then we found SQUILT
For years I’ve struggled with finding an appropriate music program to use in our home. I love finding resources on my own, and that hasn’t been hard to do with all that we have at our finger tips thanks to the internet. But I was still on the look out for a solid music curriculum for my kids.
When Mary from Home Grown Learners mentioned she was looking for people to review her curriculum SQUILT, I jumped at the opportunity.
What SQUILT is & what lessons look like
SQUILT stands for Super Quiet Un-Interrupted Learning.
In Volume 1 you will find:
- 10 lessons on The Baroque Era
- You will study 5 different composers
- And learn about musical instruments of that era.
Each lesson is broken down into five parts:
- About the piece
Within each lesson there are references for audio (which are part of the lesson), and extra reading.
What age group is SQUILT for?
I use this with my 6th grader and my PreSchooler. They both have loved it. Of course my oldest dug deeper into each lesson, but over all – they both have loved and enjoyed SQUILT.
How we set it up
I loaded my onto my Nook.
But for my kiddos, I printed it out and organized them into a binder.
Here are some of the sheets in the lessons (there are more, theses are just a few)
I also tabbed each lesson :o)
