If you’re planning to do some musical explorations this summer or this coming year in your homeschool, the Library of Congress has recently published an extensive resource guide that’s just for you. “K–12 Music Education Resources at the Library of Congress” contains links to hundreds of music teaching resources, including audio recordings, sheet music, photographs, and historical documents, on subjects ranging from baseball songs to medieval chants to African-American band music to Leonard Bernstein, Franz Liszt, Dolly Parton, and much, much more. Find, save, and explore them all right here:
- ➢ K–12 Music Education Resources at the Library of Congress (linked printable pdf)
This guide was initially developed to assist teachers working remotely during the coronavirus pandemic — which makes it also ideal for both new and long-time homeschoolers — but it’s also part of the general trend to make more of the Library’s resources available online. Future revisions of the guide will be maintained on the Library’s Performing Arts Reading Room webpage.

❡ Books in the running brooks: The sidebar on the River Houses website (riverhouses.org) has links to several important online library collections that we like to explore, as well as permanent links to WorldCat and the WorldCat Library Finder. Why not sit yourself down at a large screen for a while (rather than a phone) and give them a browse. 😊
❡ When in doubt, go to the library: This is one of our regular Homeschool Books & Libraries posts. Add your name to our weekly mailing list (riverhouses.org/newsletter) and get great homeschool teaching ideas delivered right to your mailbox all through the year. 📚
