Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise.Martin Luther
Plato believes that music can move our emotions and wrote that educating through music “through habits, by imparting by the melody a certain harmony of spirit that is not science, and by rhythm, measure and grace.”
Music brings harmony and instills virtue. Thus, music selections should not merely serve our pleasure. But it should serve a greater purpose of making the listener familiar with well-ordered emotions. After all, one of the highest objectives of education is ordo amoris, the ordering of our loves.
Music is also a useful tool to help impress truth, goodness, and beauty into our hearts. With this in mind, I’ve compiled a couple of playlists for our own homeschool and I’m sharing it with you to help bring this into your homes.
