Why Summer Music Lessons?

IMG_0283.JPG

Let’s face it.  If you think about it, you learned so much this past school year!  We don’t stop often enough to reflect on how far we’ve come.  If you really think about the difficulty of music you were playing last fall, (or whenever you started), and the difficulty of music you can play now, you would probably be impressed with just how much you’ve improved in a few months.

Unfortunately, in music, if you do not keep practicing, your skills will start to backslide. Students who do not take lessons over the summer generally need a substantial amount of review once they return to lessons in the fall; taking lessons and practicing throughout the summer months can avoid this.  

On the other hand…it is SUMMER!  No school, longer days and freedom! There is swimming, vacations and time to do absolutely nothing at all!  I totally get that, however I believe that we can combine the relaxation of summer AND continue to maintain and advance every student’s music abilities.


Since summer is less scheduled, there is more time to practice and advance.  We can learn fun music that the students choose to work on.  Kids need a bit of structure in the summer, and music lessons are a great way to do this.


Summer Music Lesson Schedule

Summer music lessons will be 30 minutes in length and scheduled on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for 8 weeks in June, July and August.  

Summer lessons will be offered  Monday-Thursday the weeks of:

June 12, 19 and 26     July 10, 17 and 24     August 7 and 14

 Obviously, the more weeks of lessons that can be scheduled will result in more progress over the summer months.

Please fill out the online Summer Music Lesson Sign Up form, and indicate your desired dates and time slot for your student(s) lesson.  I will then compile all the information, and put together the summer studio schedule.

Secure your preferred time slot soon.  Don't delay!

(Please note: Summer tuition schedule is based on a shorter time frame for payment and should not be compared to the 9 month school year monthly tuition.)

Payment for the summer lesson package should be paid in full at the first summer lesson.  (Arrangements can be made to divide the payment into 2 payments. Please just ask!)


Schedule Flexibility

Each family should try to find a day, time and the weeks for lessons that can be reserved in your family for lesson time.  I understand that in the summer, events come up, and schedules can change week to week so lessons can be re-scheduled.  Summer is a flexible time of year!  24 hours notice is appreciated!!

If at the end of the 8- week summer session a student has lessons paid for that he or she did not take yet, we will schedule those lessons in the remainder of August, as time is available.  Summer lessons cannot be carried over to the fall.

 

I’m looking forward to a great summer of musical learning!  I’ve been researching new music games and cool music for students to play!  How about composing?!
Don’t go all summer without music!
