Music is all around us, on TV, in movies, everywhere we go. It’s so omnipresent, that we can sometimes forget to actively make space for it in our lives, and the lives of our children. In today’s episode, Holly and Melody discuss making music a part of your life, why it’s important, what benefits you can expect for your children, how to access music in different forms, and more! Listen to discover how to make time for music, how to appreciate it even if you’re not a musician yourself, and how music education can fit into your day like any other subject! And if you’re still thinking about homeschooling, but you haven’t made the leap yet, make sure to stay to the end as Holly and Melody give advice for people just like you!
