Hi! My name is Erica Johns, and I am a busy homeschooling mother of six children. Some of you may know me from my business, Supermom’s Health and Wellness. I have always had an appreciation for classical music, but have struggled to find a simple and affordable way to incorporate it into our homeschool. Yes, we have CDs, but I find that it is easy to forget what resources I have on the shelves. I needed a straightforward, no-planning-required way to share more about classical music and the fascinating composers behind the music, without adding more hours to my teaching schedule, or costing a lot of money.
Eventually my search led me to develop this service both for myself and to share with other homeschool families. There are so many wonderful classical music resources available to us on the internet, but most of us do not have the time to seek them out, review them, and determine their usability or appropriateness for the typical homeschool family.
My son Micah and I have collaborated on this project for you. As a recent homeschool graduate, he has a good eye for what students will find interesting, as well as what parents will appreciate! We have compiled the best available resources we can find, reviewing them for their value, age appropriateness, and have made sure that any potentially objectionable material is known to parents in advance so that you can determine how to present the material to your children.
Each month you will receive an email introducing a classical music composer, and you will get a special members-only link to access the resources we’ve compiled for you. In most cases you’ll get interesting ebooks, a playlist you will be able to enjoy with a simple click, videos related to the composer and their music, activities, assignment ideas, and more. (content varies depending on what is available at the time when we compile the resources) You’ll continue to have access to each Classical Composer resource page indefinitely.
The resources you see here come from a variety of web sites and resources available on the internet. Yes, you can find them yourself if you want to take the time to do so. (It takes us several hours per composer to sort through the resources we find and choose the best ones for you.) We are not selling you these resources. We are only selling the service we provide by compiling, reviewing, and sharing the best resources available.
