In addition to planning summer camps, the studio recital coming up in June, and my end-of-year evaluations, I'm working on putting together ideas for summer lessons. There is a lot of planning for us to do, isn't there? I teach during July, but take August off for vacation and for planning for the new year, so I want my students to be as motivated as possible during the "lazy days of summer".
So, I thought I would take a quick survey to see what the rest of you might have done or plan to do this summer. Would you please share?
Do you put together packets for your students? If so, would you share what those packets include?
Do you plan an incentive program over the summer? If so, what type of incentive have you found works the best?
Do you purchase additional music for your students to work on over the summer? If so, would you share what repetoire you find works the best for independent learning?
I thought I would compile the information here on my blog so that everyone has a list in one place. Just post what you are doing and I'll put together the information for all to see!
