I’m quite excited about a free resource I found online this morning. Another homeschooling mom has written a guide to teaching music theory, and it looks really good. Best of all, did I mention it’s free?
I’m not sure how difficult this would be to teach for a mom who was totally unfamiliar with music. However, since she includes resources that you can use to explain concepts to your children, I don’t see why Mom couldn’t learn along with her kids.

(While you’re there, look through more of her blog. It looks great!)
