A Few Words About Us
How Colorado Homeschool Music Began
Colorado Homeschool Music, Inc. (CHM) was formed out of a desire for a complete band program for homeschoolers. Band is good for personal growth and societal growth that happens when working as a team. Instrumental education is the best for brain development; better than learning a foreign language or playing sports-but don’t throw those away either!
2 Years Later
Fast forward to two plus years and this is what Colorado Homeschool Music looks like now: Bands, Choirs & Orchestra! Even a General Music class to get the littles started.

Orchestra I & II/Choir - Castle Rock
Hi! I am Lois Owsley! I am excited about the opportunity to share my love for music and string orchestra with the homeschool community of Castle Rock.
I have been playing the violin since fourth grade, played in orchestras growing up, studied privately from great teachers, received a BA in Violin Performance from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado and an MA in Music Education from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. I have played in symphony orchestras and other musical events as well as taught hundreds of students on stringed instruments and piano in my home-based Personal Notes Music in Louisiana, Utah, California and Colorado.
I have created music enrichment classes in several schools and daycares. I am a lifetime learner and love attending workshops and conferences. I was the string orchestra director in the Douglas County Band/Orchestra Program through Colorado Chamber Orchestra for 6 years and currently teach privately in my home studio and online.
I hope many of you will join to create an awesome youth orchestra here in Castle Rock.
