Guitar Lessons for Homeschool (or Bass Guitar or Ukulele or Songwriting!)

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.

Williamson County Children's Author R. Friend Shares Homeschool Reading Ideas

I believe our world consistently bombards our children with a culture of godlessness, narcissism, instant gratification, and moral relativity. Our company, Sunflower Seeds Press, was birthed to create for them and their families unique books that develop godly character, motivate selflessness, encourage good work ethic, and inspire principled living. My chapter and picture books sow seeds of character

Local Author and Homeschool Teacher To Sign Books at Teach Them Diligently 2020

The books in Keely Brooke Keith's Uncharted series are known for their mix of historical fiction, science fiction, and romance. It's no wonder they are beloved by older homeschooler students and homeschool moms alike.

When asked about the Uncharted series' appeal, Keely says, "My readers are much like those who enjoy Amish fiction. They want simple times, wholesome values, and rural settings. Homeschool moms enjoy reading the Uncharted series, and the SciFi element pulls in a lot of teen girls. Since the love stories are squeaky clean, my books are mom approved."

Keely will be signing books at the Realm Makers booth at Teach Them Diligently Nashville Feb. 28 and Feb. 29, 2020. Come meet her and check out the Uncharted series.

Keely Brooke Keith writes inspirational frontier-style fiction with a futuristic twist, including The Land Uncharted (Shelf Unbound Notable Romance 2015) and Aboard Providence (2017 INSPY Awards Longlist).

Born in St. Joseph, Missouri, Keely was a tree-climbing, baseball-loving 80s kid. She grew up in a family who moved often, which fueled her dreams of faraway lands. When she isn't writing, Keely enjoys teaching home school lessons and playing bass guitar. Keely, her husband, and their daughter live on a hilltop south of Nashville, Tennessee.
