Let Me Teach For You!
Take one thing off your plate.
Sit back and relax as I lead your children in music appreciation lessons that will engage, delight, and leave them wanting more.
A SQUILT LIVE! membership is the perfect way for children to gain a little independence and for parents to know they are learning music from an EXPERT who has a passion for providing families with a quality music education.
"SQUILT LIVE! has become such a fun anchor to our week! It is a blessing! I only wish I could get something like laundry done during your lesson however I can't help but join my kids to watch and listen too.
A rich packet of information along with your kind guidance keeps us focused, and well, the music plays for itself. We love everything about SQUILT!"
- Kimberly, SQUILT Live! Parent
Mary holds a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Southern Methodist University and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Supervision from Georgia State University. She taught music in the public schools in Texas and Georgia for 10 years before beginning her career as a homeschooling mother.
During this time she began to develop the SQUILT Music Appreciation curriculum, all the while teaching piano lessons, music co-op classes, and more. It is her heart's greatest desire to share her love of music with children. SQUILT LIVE! is the culmination of years of sharing the SQUILT method with literally thousands of children.
Her favorite composer is Aaron Copland and her favorite instrument is the pipe organ. Music is so much more than Beethoven, Bach, & Mozart (although we learn about them, too) and she wants to bring your children that wonderful variety.
She enjoys playing piano and directs the Cherub Choir at her church. When she's not working on SQUILT you will find her spending time with her family or curled up somewhere reading a good book!
SQUILT Live Includes:
A monthly listening calendar - clickable PDF with an engaging piece of music to share with your children each day
2 live SQUILT music appreciation lessons each month taught by Mary (recordings available for 30 days if you are not able to attend). Lessons include printable listening maps, notebooking pages, and supplemental activities.
SQUILT Basics Lessons
Access to our SQUILT basics lessons provide a great foundation before beginning your live lessons
This year promises to be engaging and fun for our SQUILT LIVE! members. We will review the musical eras, explore circus music, and learn about performers and composers with differing abilities. Of course, musicals and Jazz will appear again after the first of the year. The SQUILT Basics lessons available to members are a great way to make sure your children are up to speed on the elements of music, too. It’s a musical feast for your entire family!
