When school lets out, most kids are excited.  Their heads are filled with visions of sleeping in, hiking, biking, and going to the beach.

Parents wonder about something else known as “summer learning loss”.  Summer music lessons might be just the thing to give both kids and parents what they want!

Lots of kids enjoy the challenges of school and its associated extracurricular activities, and miss them over the long downtime of summer. Luckily, music provides a perfect answer to this problem, because it is both fun and challenging, and keeps kids engaged. Just because school stops doesn’t mean your lessons have to, and continuing to work on music over the summer gives kids goals to work toward, building self-reliance and initiative.

Even though school is out, you want to keep your kid’s brain functioning on a high level during the break, and music is the perfect way to do that.

If you’ve already signed your child up for music lessons, chances are you know all about the important advantages it offers kids. In addition to being an important creative and physical outlet, music also improves literacy and quantitative reasoning, and provides valuable social and emotional benefits too. Music helps keep these benefits from lapsing during summer.
