First, thank you to all the moms who have answered previous questions that I have posted. It is very much appreciated!! I would like to ask current suggestions (or even relevant links to previous forum topics) that would suitably address my inquiry. For a legitimate music degree/credit, what would be the most suitable book/material which would offer a more COMPLETE music credit for an entire year's worth of study? I have looked at some previous suggestions, like coursera, Yale opencourseware, Khan, and Prof Carrol. All of these seem incomplete. They would not count as an entire year's worth of learning. The added complication is that I am overseas and have already made a state-side trip this year, so I would need to order something ideally that can be downloaded, like a PDF file, if possible. Currently, my daughter is taking a lot of courses through Potter's School. I think I've already missed the window to register for a music course this year, and also, the one suitable class offered has a time which conflicts with another course she is taking. I glanced at the Potter's School music syllabus for a standard to go by. They require a book written by Peter, D.M.A. Spencer Practice of Harmony. It seems fairly difficult and if I ever learned the details in this book completely, I have forgotten them and would have to relearn them myself before presenting the material. They do have Spencer's book on Amazon as an etext file. There are some activities in the book, but I'd have to take a screenshot and print those out. My daughter has already put in a lot of hours practicing during high school; before high school, I taught her the basics of reading music, including key signature, notes, etc. She has written some simple songs, recorded them in Garage Band, complete with lyrics, instruments, and voice. She plays simple chords on the guitar. Anyone who has heard her recordings seem impressed :). I had hoped she could apply to a state university later, but I am afraid that she needs a more detailed study of music for it to look legitimate.
