I realize it's only April, but as I said in an earlier post, I'm already working on my summer camp schedule and all the details. This year I am once again running three camps. Two of the camps - Piano Discovery Camp and Music Olympics - will run again this year and I am also finishing up plans for a new one - RoadTrip USA! As I put plans for camps together, I'm also investing time creating games and activities that I can pull out for other events, such as group lessons. This makes future planning much easier!
Music Olympics - a general music camp designed to teach and reinforce notes on the staff, rhythm, terminology and introduce handbells. The campers compete individually and as a team to try and earn medals.
RoadTrip USA! - a musical journey across America celebrating American music styles and American composers. Each day of camp will celebrate a part of our great country and its diversity of music - everything from hoedowns to swing dancing! We'll also learn the story behind our national anthem! This is one trip I'm looking forward to taking!
This should be a very fun summer! My studio parents now have the list of dates for the camps and I'm getting ready to send out a mass e-mail to all my studio contacts. It may seem early, but parents are already talking about summer plans and I want to make sure my studio camps are on the top of the list! Not only does running camps help to financially supplement the slower summer months, but it's also a great marketing tool! This past year I gained 6 new students as a result! Lets call that "reverse marketing"!
I would love to hear what you're planning to do this summer!
