Is this course only available online? Or can it also be purchased without signing up for the monthly membership? Thanks

Thank you for your question.  We've had many requests for a hard-copy version of the "Early Sacred Music" course, and we are working on it at this time. We don't have a release date yet, though. When we do, it certainly will be on our website.

We expect to have it ready right at the beginning of 2016, in time for the new conference season.  We very much look forward to having it available.  Thank you for your inquiry!

How long do you think it will take to go through it? My daughter will be studying the ancients soon, so I like to add that course. Thanks

I'm going to copy what I just wrote over here, as well. 
Your daughter would be able to gain many things from the course, I believe.  She would be at the younger end of the scale. so some parental input, or input from a tutor, would be helpful.  You can pick and choose the parts of the assignments that seem most relevant, or create your own tailored to her interests.  You could also work either in chronological order, as the course goes, or pick and choose units.  We have students working all kinds of ways with the course. 

Insofar as the length of the course, there is so much flexibility.  You may wish to integrate a unit at the point it matches up with your history cycle.  Or you may wish to keep it separate.  At her age, a unit could be viewed as an enrichment exercise, and whatever material sticks, sticks.  Or, you could go more slowly through each unit, and try to cover it all.  The "enrichment" approach does seem to work well for middle-schoolers.

High-schoolers tend to do the course in a semester or across an academic year. But you wouldn't be under that pressure to complete a HS credit in a set period of time.

If your time allows, we'd  love to hear more about the experience you will have with your daughter, should you use the course.  What parts of the music, the live footage sequences, the commentaries by the specialists, historians, monks, etc., engaged her the most?  What was her response to the art?  Which assignments did she find most fruitful?  Let me know your additional questions.

The Early Sacred Music course will be available in hard copy soon.  Very soon!  There are just a few steps in production that need to occur.
