I saw the Rolling Stones last night (squee*) and I realized: besides classical composers- I didn't learn ANYTHING about music history in school.

I will definitely include it at home!!

Thoughts?

Seeing as Music is one of my sons loves, I will probably try to incorporate some Music History into his lessons.  I think it is a great thing to learn about.

I agree! Music has had so much influence on culture. It can be mixed with sociology a bit too :)

Exactly!  I probably won't do it as its own class but will add it when doing History or other lessons that it seems to tie in well with.  Using music to teach him will also be something I try, if I can figure it out.  He is just a huge music lover and I think learning about music history is a great way to broaden his education.

Music is an excellent way to help learn history because most musicians pull from what is going on around them to create their songs.

I think this would lead to such fun lessons! You're so right when you say

I couldn't agree more. There's folk, blues, jazz, another thing that comes to mind would be the Beatles & the emergence of 'pop,' so much culture and history can be taught through music. Who knows you might even shape your kids' taste in music and open them up to more than what's currently on the radio.

Classic, jazz/ swing/ big band, oldies- the beetles for sure. Punk (I'm a punk rocker at heart lol) and rock too!

I have been forming ideas around this.. like starting the lesson with "dress up" to set the mood. :D
