Great Hymns of the Faith full hymn study course

I have written a full online course called Great Hymns of the Faith: A Hymn Study for All Ages that is more comprehensive that what we have here.

Take a look at the free lesson on "Amazing Grace."

What's different about it compared to this Charlotte Mason music course?

Read on:

Whether your purpose is to study hymns as part of your Charlotte Mason curriculum, morning basket time, to grow in your personal faith, family worship time, or simply as another genre for music appreciation, this is the course for you!

"Great Hymns of the Faith" is perfect for all ages because such a variety of activities are included.

For each hymn you find:

  • The Lyrics
  • 4-5 Videos of various versions
  • Information about the composer
  • The Story behind the song
  • PDF of all verses in 4-part harmony
  • Videos of Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass so you can learn the parts and sing it in 4-part harmony with your family, co-op, or other group (recorded by Gena and her oldest son)
  • A Music Lesson that relates to each hymn
  • Copywork of the lyrics
  • An original coloring page for each hymn (designed by Gena's oldest daughter)
  • A devotional that mom or dad can read to the family that relates to the hymn
  • A Bible Study to do along-side learning the hymn. The Scripture is provided in three Bible versions, as well as a variety of Bible Study methods to choose from.
