I started the website Music in Our Homeschool at the end of 2015, but have been writing at I Choose Joy! for almost 10 years! Throughout the years, I’ve compiled a number of music freebies that I’d like to share with you today. Some are single lessons, some are unit studies, and some contain notebooking pages and worksheets.
