Summer is here, school is out, and the opportunity to indulge in refining your piano playing skills like never before is here! You’re not considering putting a stop to those lessons for the summer, are you? Wow, it’s hard to believe, but there are a select few who choose to do that. Unfortunately, that’s a perfect recipe for “backsliding.” Why would you want to lose value from your investment in lessons and time by doing that? When it comes to practicing piano, there is no better time!
Isn’t it strange… people will aspire to engage in piano lessons because it’s something they love to do. Summer comes, school is out, and those few “need” a vacation from something they love to do? Something doesn’t quite add up. For some reason, some people seem to equate “school” with “piano lessons.” Playing piano is a favorite hobby that you’ve been involved with because it was your choice to do so. So, it seems a bit ludicrous if you need a vacation from that when you consider how much more enjoyment you could get out of those lessons during the summer months.
In short, if you’re looking to get the most value from your investment in time and money, it would be wise to keep the ball rolling with those lessons. Besides, if you have a creative piano teacher, you’ll continue to look forward to those lessons each week. Practicing piano ought to be a joy ride. If that’s not the case, then maybe it’s time to re-evaluate your situation. If having fun is not the bottom line, something might be wrong. Communicate with your teacher about it and/or consider your options.
The summer months offer you a terrific time to get in touch with realizing your potential, so don’t waste it. Perhaps it would be a good idea to add some extra “spice” to those lessons. Set a goal for yourself like like learning a favorite song you’ve been wanting to learn for a while. Now that you have the extra time, you’ll have a better opportunity to devote yourself to the accomplishment of it. Again, your piano instructor can be of great help so be sure to share your goals.
There is plenty of time for all those other wonderful activities and we certainly wouldn’t want you to deprive yourself of having fun with all of that. Just keep in mind that your piano lesson is only an hour or less out of your entire week and your playing time at home is, of course, something you’ve treated yourself to right along so you’ll want to maintain that source of fun as well! Of course, if you haven’t started piano lessons yet and have been thinking about it, there’s no better time than NOW!
