How important is it that we continue to take lessons over the summer?

Summer is the only time we permit our Fall and Spring semester students to enroll on a “per-diem” basis in order to fit as many lessons as possible into their summer plans. We strongly recommend taking summer lessons, even if it’s just a lesson or two that fit in between summer camps and family vacations. Music is like language, and taking ten weeks off from speaking music will set back progress by months, and make it difficult to retrieve those hard-earned gains. Alternatively, like great athletes, you make yourself in the off-season: Summer is a great time to invest in improving those skills that might take too much time during the school year, and will make your young musicians shine in September.
