With summer here and kids soon be out of school, children have a wonderful opportunity to learn a new instrument, have more time to focus on the instrument they already play, or participate in summer music camps.
If your child already plays an instrument, summer is a great time to focus on improving their skills. Students have more time to practice, and some students choose to take two lessons a week. This can allow for an amazing amount of musical growth and students can "wow" their school music teachers with their progress when they come back in the fall! Whatever you choose, keep your child in music during the summer. Consistency is the key to learning and developing skills. If a student stops lessons for the entire summer, they can actually go backwards in their musical development which can be very frustrating when picking the instrument back up.
Participate in summer music camps! There are a wide variety of summer camps for beginners to advanced musicians. If your child has no musical experience and wants to discover their musical side, try a camp like beginning guitar camp. If they already play an instrument and want to expand their knowledge and skills, try a theory camp. There are also a wide range of ensemble camps including rock band, string/orchestra/chamber, band, and choir. This is a great way to meet other kids while improving their musical skills. Finding the right camp for your child can spark inspiration and motivation. They will build memories for a lifetime!
Learning a new instrument during the summer, whether your child already plays one or not, can be the highlight of the summer! Just because kids are not in school doesn't mean the learning has to stop. See what instrument your child has the desire to play, and watch them grow.
Have fun this summer and play music!
