With summer vacation soon approaching most parents are brainstorming about how to keep their children occupied. This usually means coordinating with a babysitter, taking trips to the beach, attending a summer camp, etc.
If your child plays an instrument in his/her school orchestra consider signing them up for private lessons! One weekly 60-minute lesson will prepare them for the coming school year. They'll have the opportunity to review basics, learn new peices, try new concepts like improvising, and more importantly stay in "learning mode." The bass is a very physically demanding instrument and a few months of not playing will most certainly take a beginner student back to square one.
This summer I will have a limited number of openings for students as my performance schedule begins to fill up. Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
Have a great summer!
