    Thistles and biscuits has done it again!  My family uses this for Fridays and it has been so interesting. It has those lovely hand painted watercolor flash cards, book lists (some of the books on the book list include CDs to listen to as well), Spotify play list, and composer spot light. We have learned about instruments we had no idea existed, and to hear them is quite an experience. Lively discussions have ensued! We have also learned to consider where we get our music to be considerate of the artist, something I had not thought of before . Do not hesitate to add this to your curriculum.

    This product is absolutely beautiful. Every word on every page is so well thought out and written and the illustrations are just divine. You can tell that hours of work went into this product and I cannot wait to begin using it with my kids. Suitable for all ages - even parents! Love it!

    BEAUTIFUL! And so much information!



    The watercolors are astounding and the musical education is sublime. Lovely, everything I'd hoped for and so much more.

    Absolutely incredible product! Can’t believe how gorgeous it is. It’s laid out for one lesson a week, but we may do two per week. My kids were just too excited to stop at one. Had a question about printing and they responded right away, incredible customer service! The manual can be printed, but you will need the digital version to get to get to the links. I find this saves on ink and just printed the workbook and flash cards. The content, beauty, and ease of download was worth every penny.


    This is the best music curriculum! It is colorful, diverse, and engaging. We can't wait to enjoy Woven Melodies in our homeschool.

    Absolutely love this music curriculum. It is beautifully designed and informative. Can’t wait to use it this year with my fifth grader.
