My name is Mary Prather and I am the author of SQUILT Music Appreciation.  I am also the owner and author of Homegrown Learners, a homeschool blog that helps you grow your learners ONE DAY AT A TIME.  

I have an undergraduate degree in Music Education from Southern Methodist University  and a Masters Degree in Education from Georgia State University. After much experience in public schools and now in our own homeschool, I saw a need for quality music appreciation materials. 

I have designed this curriculum so that you do not have to do any work. I have done it for you!

What exactly is SQUILT?

It is short for Super Quiet UnInterrupted Listening Time, and was an idea I used to use in my days as a classroom music teacher, and have now been using with my own children. It is perfect for preschoolers, elementary students, and middle school students.  


SQUILT is "Fail-Proof"

"Mary has created a music appreciation course that even a music-phobe can use. No more wondering if I'm covering the "right" composers or the "right" pieces. SQUILT has it all laid out in chronological order.

As a user of notebooking, I'm a huge fan of Mary's customized notebooking pages which she integrates into the study. There is really no more excuse for not enjoying music in your homeschool. This is fail-proof."

"My favorite homeschool resources are the kind that are totally open-up-and-go. With SQUILT, Mary has collected the best links, stories, and music - all I need to do is open it up and start enjoying music with my children. It's my favorite way to explore music with my kids!"
