Dr. Carol Reynolds became interested in homeschooling during her tenure as a professor of music history at Southern Methodist University from 1985 to 2006. After retiring and moving with her family to a ranch, she began designing fine arts curricula for high schoolers, particularly homeschoolers. In 2009, she published an unprecedented multimedia course entitled Discovering Music: 300 Years of Interaction in Western Music, Arts, History, and Culture. She is now preparing a curriculum on America’s artistic and cultural heritage. Dr. Reynolds has long been a popular speaker for arts and educational organizations such as The Dallas Symphony and the Van Cliburn Series. She designs teachers’ workshops and leads educational tours to Europe and Russia. The Homeschooling Edge: A Professor’s View on College Prep was released in 2011. She and her husband, Hank, have two grown children.
