Music can become one of the “forgotten homeschool subjects”, often due to expense or lack of resources. I’ve compiled a list of free resources. These sites will help provide the information to teach an instrument as close to free as possible; besides of course the expense of the instrument itself.
Locally, my oldest son took a music class at a local college and LOVED it. He still talks about it to this day. Because of that, we bought him a guitar and small drum set to keep his love of music going. I’ve also purchased a small piano to teach him.
Here is my list of sites that offer lessons in a variety of instruments for free:
