"If you're a parent who has decided to educate your children yourself, this book is the first you should buy."—?Washington Times The Well-Trained Mind will instruct you, step by step, on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education from preschool through high school—one that will train him or her to read, to think, to ?understand?, to be well-rounded and curious about learning. Veteran home educators Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer outline the classical pattern of education called the trivium, which organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the child's mind and comprises three stages: the elementary school "grammar stage," the middle school "logic stage," and the high school "rhetoric stage." Using this theory as your model, you'll be able to instruct your child in all levels of reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music, regardless of your own aptitude in those subjects. This newly revised edition contains completely updated ordering information for all curricula and books, new and expanded curricula recommendations, new material on using computers and distance-learning resources, answers to common questions about home education, information about educational support groups, and advice on practical matters such as working with your local school board, preparing a high school transcript, and applying to colleges.

This book offers a rare opportunity for teachers to benefit from the knowledge and experience of ten master teachers. In his or her own words, each contributor discusses the Suzuki philosophy and how it can best be put into practice. The subject is addressed in a logical fashion, moving from the theoretical to the practical, with contributors' ideas set out so that readers will find a range of opinions on any particular aspect of the method grouped together. 10 Teacher's Viewpoints on Suzuki Piano covers issues of interest to all piano teachers, such as the importance of listening and review, supplementary repertoire, when to introduce reading, and how to bring out students' musicality. In addition, the contributors offer concrete ideas for developing technique and planning lessons.
"Plucky Bunny's Harp Adventures" is the perfect series for the young student beginning harp lessons. It is ideally suited to Kindergarten through early elementary level students, and covers the beginning level topics in technique and music theory. Each book contains finger exercises, children's songs with texts, fun music theory lessons and worksheets, and even some composition projects! The books are paced similarly to the predominant piano methods available for young students. Book 1 contains pre-reading material to stabilize rhythm and string names before moving too quickly into the staff. The end of book 1 and book 2 contain note names in some noteheads, gradually being removed by the end of book 3. This allows the student to play more pieces each week that are comfortable to read and play correctly each time. For additional note-reading reinforcement, check out "Plucky Bunny's Silly Staff Songs," which can accompany Book 3. By the end of Book 3 students can read from the grand staff, play with all four fingers necessary for harp technique, and have learned about triads, inversions, major scales, and generic interval names. This series can be used as a primer set before beginning another harp method.
