Ah, summer days! There’s art camp, lacrosse camp, trips to the pool, and frequent excursions to Rita’s, not to mention music lessons!
Isn’t summer supposed to be a break? For us parents, it’s often a nonstop juggling of schedules and running to and fro for the many different activities.
Don’t get me wrong. We love that our kids have the opportunity to do these things, but we still need to find some semblance of balance, for our sake and our kid’s.
If we’re not careful, one of the things that can suffer with this lack of balance is our child’s music lessons. Below are some ideas for not letting your child’s music lessons fall by the wayside.
5 tips to keep music lessons fun this summer:
1. Create a summer practice chart. Make a chart where you child checks off each day they practice. If, at the end of the week they meet their goal, they get a prize!
Tip: the back of a cereal box works great for a chart!
