Hey, homeschoolers!

Music is such an important and gratifying part of home education. You may have heard my interviews with Joseph Hoffman about piano and Gena Mayo about easy ways of including music in your homeschool.

Today, I’m delighted to share my interview with Inga Hope, founder of Gentle Guitar online school and the creator of Music Ed digital magazine about why you should consider having your child learn guitar. She shares the pros and cons of the various approaches to learning the guitar and I know you’ll love her.

  1. My boys are I Their 2nd month of online classes and already I see a new passion. My youngest who is the one least interested had me worried that he would give it up, quickly but instead set a goal. He has one particular song he wants to be able to play and if that means learning every other son on earth first, he’s determined he’ll learn to play the song. My older boy loved it right away and practices all on his own. He randomly picks up the guitar and practices. I recommend a piano book stand, so it sits out all the time. They’ve carved out their own piano area in my living room, and I can tell this will be a passion of theirs.❤️
