Summer Guitar Lessons For Kids
Top 4 reasons summer guitar lessons with Philadelphia’s David Joel are worth it
Kids work hard all school year so it’s important that they spend their summers having fun and relaxing. Luckily for your young musician, summer guitar lessons are a great way to have fun and chill. At rhe same time, it helps make their summer vacation a productive one.
Here are our top four reasons why your child should be enrolled in summer guitar lessons:
Use it or lose it
Playing guitar is the only way to develop and maintain the physical and mental skills you need to play the guitar. If you know anyone who’s taken significant time off from practicing, they can tell you how sore their wrists and fingers were when they started playing again. They can explain the frustration they experienced when they couldn’t play as smoothly or for as long as they used to. When your child signs up for summer guitar lessons, they’re avoiding the frustrating experience of having to shake the rust off later.
Less distractions create greater focus
Taking guitar lessons during the summer means three more months of progress for your child. For a dedicated young musician, they can be even more valuable than three months of progress during the school year. Does your child love practicing in their free time? Do they have a hard time focusing on music when they’ve had a long day at school? If so, summer lessons give children an opportunity to learn free of the stresses, distractions, and fatigue they might experience during the buy school year. With the extra time and energy comes extra focus and enthusiasm. Often, the student improves even faster over the summer than they do during the rest of the year!
Spending time with your teacher
The relationship between a young musician and their teacher is extremely important. A good student-teacher relationship helps a child to develop more than just their music skills, but their confidence and self-esteem. At the David Joel Guitar Studio, we genuinely love seeing our students’ passion for music grow as their skills progress. Why run the risk of losing that by dropping lessons over the summer? It’s okay if they miss a few weeks of classes during the summer. Vacations and family visits are also important to help your child relax and unwind during the summer. They can just catch up on lessons when they are able to.
Last, but not least, it’s fun!
This is no surprise but one of our favorite things about playing and teaching guitar is how much fun it is! Maybe your child wants to learn how to play some new songs, or they need help working on their guitar solo for their band’s latest song. Perhaps they are a complete beginner. Together you’ve decided that this summer is the right time for them to pick up a fun new hobby. Whatever their goals, we guarantee they’ll have a blast with summer guitar lessons at the David Joel Guitar Studio in Philadelphia.
