Homeschool Review Crew: Guitar 360 Method Review

My girls have been interested in learning how to play the guitar for years. We bought them guitars and have tried numerous video and online classes in the past, but nothing seemed to stick. They always ended up frustrated and that would be the end of that. Until now. The Semester 1 Bundle (including an additional Absolute Beginner Course and Bonus Songs) from Guitar 360 Method was a game changer for us!

Guitar 360 Method
Created by Krisz Simonfalvi, Guitar 360 Method is an online video program that teaches students to play guitar using a Non-Linear, Cyclical Pedagogy. Essentially what that means is that instead of using a linear method where students go from point A to point B in their learning, possibly forgetting what they learned at A by the time they get to B, Krisz works around in a circle building a foundation they can expand on in future lessons.

Guitar 360 Method was created for both ambitious beginners and also those who have been playing a while. If you want to learn scales and chords and everything you need to know to play songs, but are also interested in understanding what’s behind the music and how everything relates within the music so you can freely create your own then this program is for you!
Krisz highly recommends starting with the Absolute Beginner Course and Bonus Songs, whether you’re a beginner or you’ve been playing a while. I would call it a pre-requisite. This short course packs a ton of beneficial information in: parts of the guitar, left and right hand basics, tuning, how to look at chord charts, and how to understand the guitar at a fundamental level. Definitely start here before jumping into Semester 1.

Semester 1 is thirteen weeks long. Each week begins with a goal, video lessons that build upon that goal, and wraps up with practice. Starting in week 3 ear training is added, and in week 6 quizzes are added. The lessons are broken up into short segments and clearly labeled, making it extremely easy to review concepts whenever you need to.

What We Thought:
We started in the Absolute Beginner Course because it had been quite some time since my girls had picked up their guitars. At 12 and 14 they were able to easily follow the lessons. Even though they were eager to jump ahead and get into the chords and songs, they took Krisz’s advice to really practice and lay a good foundation. They spent time on learning and practicing the strings and frets, and really appreciated the way Krisz taught a concept and then demonstrated in a close up that they could connect with.

I truly can’t say enough good things about this course. Krisz has found a way to make learning to play guitar fun and interesting, and my girls really responded positively to his teaching style. They’re invested in sticking with this program for the long haul because they’re finally excited about learning. Krisz did that for them. My husband, who had been wanting to learn how to play the guitar for years but never found something that worked for him, even joined us.

This is an exceptional course that will ignite an excitement and desire to learn more in any student. I love the fact that it’s not subscription based so you can go at your own pace. Right now homeschooling families can get Guitar 360 Method for 20% off using coupon code HOMESCHOOL20. Go check it out now, you won’t be disappointed.

Homecoming Dance

Katie’s friend invited her to go to the Homecoming dance tonight. As homeschoolers, we don’t throw many school dances, so Katie was super excited to be invited.

She came home telling us the music was way too loud and it wasn’t anything like the dances she saw on TV, where it was all classy and sophisticated. She was happy to have had the experience, but decided she’s just not a dance kind of girl. She’s more of a book reading, Latin-studying kind of girl-which just so happens to be our favorite kind!

Homeschool Review Crew:Teach Sunday School Review

In our home, studying the word of God takes on many different forms. We read scripture, we study it, we read books about the Bible and have done many Bible studies. I recently received a great tool to add to our studies: Books of the Bible At-a-Glance by Teach Sunday School.

Books of the Bible at a Glance
Books of the Bible At-a-Glance is a collection of one-page “cheat sheets” for each of the 66 books of the Bible. Each page includes:
  • Book title
  • Order in the Bible
  • Claims to Fame
  • Who Authored the Book
  • Date the Book was Written
  • Covering This Time Period
  • Famous Stories Included
  • Most Famous Verses
  • Important Points About This Book


What We Thought and How We Used It

This is a downloadable PDF file, so I’ve been printing pages as we read from different books of the Bible. My plan is to print the entire 66 pages and stick them in a binder to always have them handy.

There are so many different ways to use these pages: in your own personal Bible reading time, Sunday school, homeschool, VBS, alongside a Bible study, or as a stand alone way to learn more about the Bible. We have used them alongside our daily reading, in church while teaching a lesson, even in homeschool group.

I think these are especially great for helping kids see the big picture of the Bible. At a single glance they can learn who wrote the book we’re reading, the time period it was written (including a timeline for easy visualization) where it is in the Bible and what number book it is. I love that it includes the verses the book is most famous for, and important points about the book.


I think Books of the Bible At-a-Glance is an invaluable resource at a reasonable price.To see what my fellow Homeschool Review Crew members had to say, be sure to click below.
