August 11, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

From time to time HSLDA receives notice of studies conducted
regarding specific areas of home education. Currently, Laura Shoop, a
senior at Carson-Newman College, is writing a research paper on
homeschool music education in East Tennessee.

The purpose of this project is to study music education trends in
selected homeschool communities of East Tennessee. Specifically, Ms.
Shoop plans to document how homeschool families in East Tennessee
approach music education, advantages and disadvantages of music
education within a homeschool environment, and the current role of
professional music educators in homeschool music education. East
Tennessee counties include: Hamilton, Bardley, Poilk, Meigs, McMinn,
Monroe, Rhea, Loudon, Blount, Roane, Cumberland, Morgan, Anderson,
Knox, Sevier, Cocke, Jefferson, Grainger, Union, Scott, Campbell,
Claiborne, Hancock, Hawkins, Hamblen, Greene, Washington, Unicoi,
Sullivan, Carter, and Johnson.

If you, or someone you know, lives in East Tennessee and is
interested in participating in this survey please contact Ms. Shoop
at: or by phone at; 770-926-7109. All surveys
must be collected no later than September 30, 2003.

Please note: Any personal information, such as names and addresses,
will remain strictly confidential and will be destroyed when the
project is complete. If you have any concerns regarding
confidentiality, you are welcome to contact the supervising
professor, Dr. Forrester, at: 865-471-3331 or

Sincerely yours,

Thomas W. Washburne
Director of the National Center for Home Education
