Music Curriculum

For Homeschoolers. For Free. Forever.

Why Practicing Musician?

We know it’s a challenge to include instrumental music education in your homeschooled child’s learning plan.

  • Hiring a private teacher is great but expensive. If you have three kids in lessons, the monthly fees can easily add up to over $500 every month.

  • Scheduling a lesson is a pain, driving your kids around constantly is stressful, and the price of gas these days increases the cost even further.

  • With a full week between lessons, it’s easy for children to forget what they have learned and develop bad habits that require even more time and money to correct.

    How Practicing Musician will help.

    Practicing Musician provides self-paced online multimedia curriculum for 15 instruments that are free. Forever.
    Concert band: alto saxophone | clarinet | euphonium | flute | french horn | oboe | percussion | tenor saxophone | trombone | trumpet | tuba
    Orchestral strings: cello | upright bass | viola | violin


    Our curriculum blends up-to-date education research best practices with technology, time-tested instrumental pedagogy, and the National Core Arts Standards.
