The Christmas spirit is unlike the feeling of any other time. It is a season of warmth and joyous celebration; its distinctive emotion is noble, sacred and uplifting, yet lighthearted and bright. It is a special time of year in our emotional lives–a time of renewal.
Trace the origin and evolution of this unique feeling. Compare the Christmas emotions of the Medievals to those of the men of the Renaissance (who invented Christmas carols); hear from the “Ghosts of Christmas Baroque, Classical and Romantic” and touch on the most recent emotional developments. Compare the Western secularized Christian holiday to the treatment of holidays in the music of Judaism, Islam & Hinduism.
Subscription includes access to all three levels: adult, junior-senior high, and elementary.

Client Reviews of the MusicAtOurHouse Program
"MusicAtOurHouse has really opened my son up to music in so many ways. He loves the way you present the material and is starting to form definite preferences in his musical choices. Thanks so very much for the marvelous work you are doing. Your product is top drawer and I can't endorse it enough." -Francesco M, Virginia
"I would like to say big thank you. Your class actually inspired my son to write. Alexander is 8 and writing has not yet been his interest, but after several lectures he actually asked me if he could write a paragraph. It was quite a surprise to me, a nice surprise. So your class is a double benefit for our family." -Elena S.
"My children are enjoying learning music history with Mr. Johnson -- he is very knowledgeable, and teaches with much enthusiasm, gentleness, and encouragement. Thank you for a wonderful class." -Margaret C, California
