I am a K-12 music teacher in a rural public school. I use Squilt’s listening calendar for an autistic student who loves music but can handle the loud that comes with middle school band. Through Squilt, I’ve been able to create an Independent Study class for her; she loves it & looks forward to it every band class.
I'm so glad we discovered the Listening Calendar! It's become the centerpiece of our homeschool--I kid you not. After one of my children was diagnosed with an aggressive terminal disease last year (once the shock wore off), I searched for homeschool curriculum that would pull all of my children together. Nothing has done that better than the listening calendar. I can't begin to tell you how much joy it's brought to our house. We always listen an hour or so before bed because it gives us time to jump down the rabbit holes that always follow--timeline of the musicians, were they married?, watch more snippets from the movie, musical, play, did they have kids?, what type of instrument is that, etc. The perfect way to end the night. Thank you!
It's so easy to just open and go and get a little music education as part of morning time each day.
This was such a great fit for our family. It was super simple for me and the kids were excited each morning to see what musical selection we would be hearing.
We enjoyes so much that I am purchasing the February calendar too.
