I absolutely love the idea of this program. We have been through 3 lessons so far and my kids actually enjoy listening to the music and talking about what they hear. I would say that the composers selected for each era are a good representation and the music selected for each composer is well chosen. There is plenty of opportunity to research further, whether it be an instrument or composer with resource links. As much as I would have liked to see a little more 'meat' in the text of the curriculum vs links to research more, it does provide the opportunity to choose your own path so to speak. One con is that all the links take you to other sites via the same browser window, so be sure to select 'open in new tab' or else you will spend a lot of time opening your curriculum back up and finding your page again. I am using this curriculum for 4 kiddos and like the simple worksheets, especially the option to draw what they hear for the little ones. I do wish the layout and graphics were updated, but just a personal preference.
So far, I think it's a great curriculum! Very well written, clear, and concise!
I’m using this as a homeschool curriculum to teach my kids (multiple ages/grades) about music. It is so user friendly! You can make it as much or as little as you want. I’m very happy with my purchase and will be recommending it to others!
I heard about SQUILT through a homeschool blog and thought I would try it out. After doing a sample lesson, I knew this would be a good fit for our homeschool, so I purchased the musical era bundle.
This package is so comprehensive! The musical era covers key composers and famous songs. I loved all the extra information and links provided too.
The notebooking pages are awesome and my girls especially love the practice of drawing what they hear.
I can’t say enough good things about SQUILT. This bundle was one of the best homeschool investments I ever made.
My 6 kids all look forward to listening to squilt during morning time! Thank you for blessing others with this gift of music
