Music is a great skill that many children can benefit from. Not only does it increase their concentration and social skills, but it can also open them up to a world of opportunity. Though the summer sun can make it hard to focus on practicing music — it is essential for their growth. To ensure your children continue an ordinary practicing scheduled, here are some things to keep in mind:
If you have summer trips or activities planned — make sure your child knows they must complete their weekly practices beforehand. By understanding their hard work will pay off, they’ll be less inclined to fight you and more eager to practice each day.
Just because your child has to practice, doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy a little sunshine. Pick a spot on your deck or yard where you can hold a lesson from time to time.
Music is not for everyone, and sometimes it comes to a point where your child might look at it as more of a chore than a skill. Openly discuss with your child about how they feel about playing an instrument. If it’s not for them, maybe you can find another summer activity they can participate in instead. Just be open and honest, and listen to their wishes.
Play an instrument of your own? Why not make it a family affair. You can play a song together, or teach them your tips and tricks. A bit rusty? Now is the time to turn the tables and learn from your child. Have them show you what they know. It’s a great learning experience and will give them pride and purpose.
