The back to school season can be hectic. Sometimes simply getting back into the swing of things takes some preparation. Here are some easy tips to ease the transition!
Lock down your schedule
Most kids respond well to consistent schedules, so use a calendar to ensure everyone know what activities are expected each day. This includes both lessons and practice times! Also consider including a rewards system that will help make the connection from consistent practicing and hard work to beautiful musical results.
Set realistic expectations for practicing
Make sure everyone is on the same page! Younger children may need shorter practice times compared to older children. Also, if your child is overtired from school and other activities, try to reschedule a time when they are well-rested and enthusiastic for learning music.
Come to music lessons with all the essentials! If your child is especially forgetful, consider creating a checklist and posting it on the door.
Befriend your child’s music teacher
You are more than welcome to sit in on at least the first few lessons, which will help ease anxiety and also allows you to get a feel for their teaching style. Communication is key for everyone!
Don’t forget the practice journal
A practice journal can be an incredibly valuable tool, when both student and teacher are using it effectively. Sit down with your child and review the journal each week.
Learn about our ensemble performance groups – Vivaldi Voices, Vivaldi Rocks, and Vivaldi Strings!
This fall we have special performances planned for our ensemble groups. These classes are wonderful opportunities to learn from peers and friends, be a part of a team, reinforce what has been learned in lessons and participate in fun performances around Houston. We’re looking forward to our Halloween performance at Hermann Park next in October 2018. Stay tuned for a variety of upcoming performances including the Children’s Museum, West University Art Night, Winter/Summer recitals and much more!
