Developed by Homeschooling Parents & Music Educators

The Making Music Praying Twice Program was developed by homeschooling parents, so the Manual is written from experience and expressly for the home, outlining techniques for families of various ages and sizes.  Even if you aren't a "homeschooler", this program allows you to do real early childhood music education at home, preparing children for future formal music studies and developing a lifetime love of music and prayer. 

 

 

95-Song Curriculum Based on the Liturgical Year

Throughout the school year, your family will explore seasonal curricula based on the Church calendar:  Ordinary Time – Fall, Advent – Christmas – Epiphany, Ordinary Time – Winter, Lent, and Easter – Pentecost. 

 

With a customized full-color songbook for each season, sized for little hands, you'll introduce your child to written music just as we introduce them to reading with storybooks.  Each season features a CD with natural, organic styles and a variety of voices of adults and children.  Our books feature a variety of professional and child art to provide a similar "variety of voices".  Our online kids activities and downloads coordinate with the seasonal curriculum for further support.  The Manual provides parents with the guidance and tools necessary to give children more than entertainment – but music education.
