One of the benefits of homeschooling is allowing my daughter freedom to work on her interests. Now, with the violin, the benefit will come later, AFTER she masters a few songs not necessarily WHILE she is learning her songs. We are up to three songs after two lessons and the melodies are recognizable! “There Is A Redeemer” is going to be a great Easter special. Visualize this: do some math, play a little piano, work on language arts, play the violin, study science, work on the guitar, unload the dishwasher, shoot some baskets, read a book….and on, and on, and on… I wish I had homeschooled when I was growing up.
