PRODUCT Living Music From the Heart Vol. 1

Kerri at Seed to Blossom, says, "I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that we had our first pennywhistle lesson yesterday and my daughter LOVED LOVED LOVED it! (I did, too!) The lesson fit seamlessly into our grade 1 circle time and my daughter (7 years old) could not get enough. Thank you for creating such a detailed, thoughtful, easy to follow curriculum. I enjoy learning along with the videos and feel empowered and excited to bring lessons to my child. I am a trained singer, but not a musician (I really don't even read music) and working with your materials has made playing an instrument accessible, fun and practically stress-free. I can easily say that pennywhistle time (done 4x per week during warm up before main lesson) is Arabella's favorite time of day! I think she'd play the penny whistle all day if she could."

Our Music Curriculum is for all parents, even those who have little or no musical experience, who want to teach music in a creative and natural way that is pleasing for every one.

Based on Rudolf Steiner's philosophy on how to teach children music.

Our Music Curriculum is designed for children at age 6 or grade 1 homeschoolers. It is very similar to the way children learn at Waldorf Schools, using many of the same methods.

Parents, not only will you LEARN HOW TO PLAY THE PENNYWHISTLE, but you will learn how to teach your young child a well rounded music experience.

*Learn to play the pennywhistle
*Learn rhythm through familiar rhymes that we all know such as Mother Goose Rhymes
*Learn rhythm through hand claps like Miss Mary Mack
*Learn through music games such as hot beans and melted butter, please my master come to supper and Listen and Freeze
*use movement songs and games in your circle time
*learn to sing new songs
*integrate lessons with your main lessons and festivals
*Learn how to write your own songs with only a few notes all you need is a mood and a rhythm
*Learn through play, imagination and story telling


Parents, NO need to learn how to read music, just simply WATCH, LISTEN, and PLAY.

EASY, EASY, EASY! The song selections are all familiar to you so you can play them easily, the songs are Mother Goose Rhymes rewritten in the MOOD OF THE FIFTH
STEP ONE say the rhyme
STEP TWO play the notes for the rhyme
STEP THREE sing the rhyme
STEP FOUR play the rhyme with your child as your child follow along with his pennywhistle on only one note, a very cute duet and pleasing to the child, then you both sing it.
