Music City Archery is adding new homeschool classes

Archery is a great sport for all ages and can be done year round. Students not only learn how to shoot a bow safely, but also learn patience, focus, coordination, balance, and self confidence. Music City Archery, owned and operated by homeschool parents Jeff and Teresa Greer, has offered homeschool classes for years. They're expanding their schedule and now offer more options for homeschoolers including Tuesdays at 2:30pm, Wednesdays at 2:30pm, and Fridays at 1:00pm. Check the full schedule here or call 615-566-5187 for details.

Why I Love Teaching Guitar Lessons written by homeschool dad Marty Keith


I love music. I love the guitar… and bass… and ukulele. I love teaching these instruments. There is satisfaction in knowing that I get to pass on to a new generation of students all of the wonderful things I have learned as a professional musician. My goal is to help students reach their musical aspirations so they can be a confident worship leader or the next major pop or country star, if that is their desire.

Currently, I have students who have what it takes to get there. My job is to bring out the best of their abilities so they can make those dreams come true. Some want to have a general knowledge of an instrument or music theory. Some just want to play along to songs on the radio. I want to help each student find out what their musical goal is and help them achieve it.


Being a homeschool dad, I understand the importance of time with your kids. Sports, homework, and life in general are always pulling at your schedule. I offer time slots throughout the day for homeschoolers so you can have the evenings free for other activities.


Instrument lessons are once a week for 30 minutes. Homeschool students get their first lesson FREE when you pay for the first month of lessons. Be sure to mention this article or the sidebar ad to receive your free lesson. You can read more about guitar lessons on my website.


Marty Keith is the owner of Edenbrooke Music. Marty grew up in Paducah, Kentucky. At age four, he began learning how to play the guitar from Herb Chapman, father of GRAMMY and Dove award winning artist Steven Curtis Chapman. The way Steven Curtis and Marty learned to play guitar is how Marty teaches his students to play.

Homeschooling in Williamson County is Being Updated

I’m Keely, a Franklin homeschool mom, and I love connecting people. While searching for Williamson County (TN) homeschool related websites, all I found were a few stagnant Yahoo groups and an activities listing site that was pay-to-play.

As I talked to other homeschool moms, we agreed there needed to be a free website with all the local homeschool info and events listed and a way to subscribe so busy moms could have the posts emailed to them. I did a little research and found out Williamson County has over 2,500 registered homeschool students—the highest per capital number of homeschoolers of any other county in Tennessee. That’s a big audience!

So in January 2015, I launched HomeschoolingWC.com to meet the need. HomeschoolingWC is a website with posts written by and for homeschool families in the Williamson County area of Middle Tennessee. The goal of this site is to provide resource listings and event information, to promote local homeschool-supporting businesses, and to pass along encouragement, tips and ideas written by homeschooling parents and educators.

After taking a few months off, we’re getting HomeschoolingWC spruced up and ready for the new school year. Are you a homeschool parent, teacher, or student and would like to write a blog post? Or are you a business owner and would like to support Homeschooling in Williamson County? Contact me through the Contact Form on the upper left sidebar to learn more.

Be sure to subscribe here (and confirm your subscription!) or through the gadget in the upper right sidebar so you won’t miss a beat in the homeschool community.

Happy homeschooling!
Keely
