Summer Music Camp: Ditch technology and grow your kids’ self esteem

Summer music lessons Denver

Summer music lessons are extremely popular, both on a conscious and an unconscious level, and recent data proves it.

Last September, your friends at Littleton School of Music took a poll* of area youths, aged 7-17, and this is what we discovered they’d spent their time doing last summer:

            82% – staring at their phones

            7% – staring at their friends’ phones

            3% – asking parents for money

            5% – rolling their eyes when asked to perform the simplest of household chores

            0.0005% – actually performing the simplest of household chores

            0.9995% – doing absolutely nothing

            2% – pestering their siblings

            142% – nappingSummer music lessons Littleton Colorado

When we asked local youths what they would LIKE to do this summer, a whopping 212% reported wishing they could do exactly what they did last summer.  Except more napping, maybe.

But when asked to project their minds into the future, and to predict what they will wish they would’ve spent their childhood summers doing, the numbers were quite different:

            5% – eye rolling (it never goes out of style for kids)

            5% – doing what their parents say (so they won’t have to later regret how right their parents were)

            5% – investing in cryptocurrencies

            85% – learning to play a musical instrument

Yes, as it turns out, your kids actually want to take summer music lessons, even if they don’t know it.

Parents are realizing how many benefits their kids get when they take summer music lessons:

  • They learn music (of course!)
  • They also improve their grades the next school year
  • This is because summer music lessons keep a kid’s mind sharp
  • Math skills improve
  • Science skills improve
  • Social skills REALLY improve
  • Eye-rolling skills stay pretty-much the same, but
  • Discipline, stick-to-it-iveness, and inspiration increase dramatically with summer music lessons.

If you’re like me, and I know I am, you probably don’t remember a thing about the summers when you basically sat on the couch and stared at a glowing rectangle.

(Granted, for us, the glowing rectangle was probably a television set.  In some cases, it was a black-and-white television.  But nobody’s judging, here.)

But if you had even one year when you were able to take summer music lessons, chances are, you remember a LOT about that summer.  Every teacher.  Every lesson.  Every song you learned.

Every eye roll.

So if you want to make this summer HOT – and memorable – for your beloved offspring, consider giving them the amazing gift of summer music lessons.

They will appreciate it for the rest of their lives.

And they’ll have a little less to talk to their therapists about.

Give Littleton School of Music a call today, and I’ll be happy to send you a FREE copy of my book, Fall In Love With Music, to help you learn more about this great answer to the “summertime blues” – for the whole family!
