I was not blessed with the gift of being musically inclined. However, my children absolutely love music and can’t get enough of it. The also love technology, so what better way to create learning opportunities than to marry the two in your homeschool.
Teaching your kiddos about music when you aren’t good at it, is tough. If they love and crave music, then that adds a completely new dynamic. Using apps to teach music can be super beneficial.
Here are a few benefits to using apps for teaching music in your homeschool:
1-James Neilson is a music teacher who works with Yousician, a guitar and piano teaching app that can be used in combination with more traditional teaching methods. Technology and one-on-one music instruction are different things that meet different needs, but they can work beautifully together.
2-Music apps can get your children working together in a non-competitive way. Nielson says, “There are no losers when a bunch of people get together and play music and work together toward creating something together.”
3-Creating music and playing with sound gives kids a chance to creatively solve problems while processing and expressing their thoughts and feelings.
4-It is also super cost-effective to purchase an app than to pay a music teacher’s weekly fees. Of course one on one lesson can help your child tremendously, but when you are on a budget this is the best route to go.
