Catholic Homeschool Curriculum
Seton’s Music Program
Kindergarten and First Grade start off with CDs of Catholic children’s songs, and then starting in Second Grade, each grade has a Catholic children’s songbook with a mix of traditional and American tunes as well as favorite religious hymns.
Since many homeschooling families incorporate their own form of musical education, such as learning musical instruments, Seton does not require a large amount of formal instruction in music.
For this subject there is an audio CD, Songs of Praise, with 19 songs that we offer for Grade K but that are appropriate for any primary or elementary level. The CD is a wonderful collection of songs for children performed by accomplished recording artist, Danny Schneible.
Children will have fun listening and singing along with the many enjoyable tracks. They will learn hymns often sung at Mass and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, which will allow them to feel more a part of the Church community and help them to participate in the prayers and songs.
Children learn 24 entertaining and educational songs on the Apostles’ Creed, Seven Sacraments, Ten Commandments, and more on the Catholic Songs for Children (CD).
Children learn 130 songs organized by liturgical season.
The We Sing and Listen songbook includes music for Advent and Christmastide, Lent and the Passion, and Easter.
