Boost Your Musical Skills This Summer

Boost Your Musical Skills This Summer

Now that summer is in full swing, it’s important for music students to take advantage of the extra free time to maximize their progress and grow as musicians. Students, here are a few strategies for getting the most out of this summer:

  1. Set an End-of-Summer Goal: Your goal could be learning and memorizing a new piece of music, mastering a new set of scales or technique exercises, or perfecting a piece you are already working on. Setting a clear goal to achieve by the end of the season is a great way to stay motivated through the long days of summer.
  2. Attend Concerts: Summer is filled with musical events, from local gigs to major festivals. Take a break from practicing and take advantage of these opportunities to expose yourself to different genres, styles, and performers. Attending concerts not only inspires but also expands your musical understanding.
  3. Pick Up a Second Instrument: Summer break is a great time to explore new musical horizons. Consider learning a second instrument to broaden your skill set and deepen your musical understanding. Whether you learn the basics on your own or take lessons, getting started on a second instrument over the summer is a great way to enhance your overall musicianship.
  4. Attend a Summer Music Camp or Festival: Immersing yourself in a music camp or festival can be a transformative experience. These events offer intensive training, exposure to expert instructors, and opportunities to collaborate with fellow musicians. Whether it’s a week-long residential camp, a day camp, or a weekend festival, participating in such programs can provide inspiration and valuable networking opportunities for music students.

There are many ways to jumpstart your musicality this summer. These are just a few suggestions. By setting clear goals, diversifying your musical experiences, and immersing yourself in musical communities, you can make significant strides in your musical journey this summer.

San Antonio Music Academy is very well organized. My daughter's piano teacher is wonderful! She's been taking lessons for 5 months and looks forward to each lesson. I really enjoy the recitals at the LOL Comedy Club.

My daughter has been registered here since she was 7. Each instructor she’s had has been very friendly and great to work with. Currently she has lessons with Ms Maria and we are so grateful for her and the entire SAMA staff. I can’t recommend enough.

San Antonio Music Academy is awesome, my son loves the guitar lessons and is super excited to attend every week! He started with zero experience and progressed surprisingly fast. Randy is an amazingly talented guitarist/teacher. He is very patient, yet knows how to push students to the next level. Highly recommend all the instructors, the staff is great!
