BENEFITS OF SUMMER LESSONS: - When students take the summer off, they typically need all of September to return to their previous level. If lessons are sustained, students benefit from not spending time playing catch-up. - Less school work means better focus. With a lighter school load, and fewer extra-curriculars and sports commitments, students’ brains are primed for focus! - Summer is an opportunity to enjoy making music and learning more in a concentrated-but-fun practice sessions.
The summer session should feel fun and exciting to the student, and focus on an area they don’t have time to explore during the school year. Teacher and student can devise one or two big goals to explore during their time together, and then the student can work at their own pace throughout the summer.
Regardless, summer can provide an interesting shift from the regular routine of music lessons. A student can always benefit from a change of pace, which in turn leads to renewed energy in the Fall.
