Back To School Guitar Lessons
Back to school starts soon! Consider guitar lessons with Philadelphia’s David Joel!
It may not seem real, but many kids around the country have already gone back to school. For many others, the first day of school is right around the corner. It’s time not only to start thinking about school supplies, back-to-school clothes and gear, and the upcoming school year, it’s also time to start thinking about extracurricular activities once the school year begins.
What is your child interested in? Does he or she want to resume a sport they’ve been playing or learn something new? There are a lot of things that your child can do after school and on weekends.
Let’s explore some things your kids might want to get involved in.
Join a club
A club can work for just about anything your child is interested in, academically. A history club, math club, science club, etc. are all great clubs to get involved in. But there are other clubs too. Drama club, chess club, book club. The choices are endless!
Sports is a given, especially if your child is active. There are so many sports to get involved in this coming school year. Soccer, basketball, baseball, volleyball, there are too many to mention. The point is to just let your child find what sport they are interested in and then get them started. Most schools are starting tryouts now so that when the school year starts, teams are ready to play.
If you have a musical child or children, sign them up for some lessons. There are several ways you can get your child in music lessons. If your school doesn’t offer music (which we think is a tragedy) due to budget cuts or not enough participation, you can get them private lessons for whatever instrument interests them. Guitar lessons, piano lessons, voice lessons can all be taught privately or online, and your child will benefit greatly from learning an instrument.
There is no better way to teach your child how to give, be kind and have patience than getting them to volunteer. They can volunteer at a hospital, the library, local kennel or just about anywhere that can use the extra help. You will be giving your child a valuable lesson: the lesson to give of yourself in a world where everyone wants to be selfish. Being selfless and helping others will teach your child valuable life lessons that they will take with them whatever they end up doing in life.
There are many ways you can get your child involved in extracurricular activities. Get them situated in schoolwork first and then explore what they may be interested in doing when class is done for the day. Kids are excited to go back to school, especially the younger ones. They’ve spent the summer at home, they are itching to get out and be with their friends.
