Current and classic films provide a dynamic and topical backdrop for
enriching the education of your homeschooling children. Each film tells a
unique story with a distinct worldview that offers an encapsulated
platform for exploring virtually any subject area within your
homeschooling curriculum. Today, movies are the storytellers and
balladeers of our time. Film forever captures a moment in time—complete
with the thoughts, motivations, and beliefs that underpin the story.
History unfolds and distant lands become real within the film’s frame.
Dry subjects and dusty narrative give way to sights and sounds that
engage nearly all of your student’s learning faculties. Adding a
thoughtful guide, with lesson plans and activities, can transform the
act of watching a movie from mere entertainment into a vehicle for
energizing your educational activities.

Scientific research shows that musical education enhances and develops
specific areas of the brain. Understanding sound, spatial relations,
mathematics and other advanced concepts is accelerated. Combined with
the study of musical history, philosophy, and theory, children so
educated will develop strong musical proficiency that will benefit them
over their entire lives.
