Beat the Heat and be sure to continue your lessons during the Summer, at Big Beat!
Summer is here! School is out, and everyone is ready for summer vacation at the shore! However at Big Beat Music, we are open all year long! In this month’s blog I would like to emphasize the importance of sticking with your music lesson routine throughout the summertime.
As a drum instructor, I usually notice that a student’s ability to keep a regular pace and learn new things is usually hindered by a two week or more absence. We all miss lessons or take vacations from time to time, but I have noticed that after missing about 2 consecutive classes, the students tend to take tremendous steps backwards. The following lessons are thus spent on more review than any new material, and the student often ends up getting somewhat of an almost identical lesson twice. (Something I try to avoid personally for several reasons)
Enjoy your summer. Take vacations. Play sports and go to camp! Keep your summer plans going and also remember to keep your lessons going at Big Beat throughout the summer.
Here are just a few suggestions to keep in mind:
1. If Possible, keep your exact lesson day and time in the Summer. (This also helps us keep your spot in the Fall)
2. When it comes to lessons and practice, do your best to maintain your regular routine
3. Play your instrument at an event, open mic, or start a band with friends!
This Summer, Big Beat has several exciting opportunities for our current students:
The Bug Beat Rock Band
Under the leadership of our own Guitar Instructor Scott Rescigno, students meet weekly to form a student band and perform at local events! Be sure to call the studio or ask at the desk for more details!
The Big Beat Percussion Ensemble, “Stick Around for the Snare Devils”
Our showcase Percussion Ensemble, headed by Big Beat Music School teacher Rob Crowther, was a huge hit so we have decided to add a summer program!
What is it?
The percussion ensemble is a class geared to learn different rhythmic styles in a group setting. They will be using drum sets along with several other percussion instruments.
Who should join?
Whether you are already taking drum lessons and find enjoyment in a group setting or are playing another instrument and want to learn about they rhythmic styles to enhance your current instrument, this class can be for anyone!
$59 for a 4 week session
