It works for us: Music

She asked for music so we are learning music.  I love the flexibility of homeschooling.  We have this baby piano we got from a garage sale.  Lydia loves to perform and make up songs.  So I found some simple 8 note music for her to learn some real songs.  After a quick google search we found a set of songs HERE, there are 10 songs and we are starting with the simplest.  I write them on larger paper with the colored notes more varied so we can tell them apart and she starts playing.  So far she is playing "London Bridge" and "Mary had a Little Lamb".  She is using an unsharpened pencil to play the xylophone bars directly, instead of hitting the piano keys.
