I didn't realize when I posted this that they are also launching a project that is designed specifically for homeschoolers. Here's that info:

Kristen is a home school parent, the Director of the Ovation Wrinkle Writing Program at the University of New Mexico and a teacher of theatre and movement for all ages. John is a professional musician, dance accompanist, composer, home school parent and teacher of music.
