During the summer break
We encourage our students to take it easy but it can be quite a shock to stop playing all together for three weeks and then suddenly pick back up where you left off. Even playing 1 scale or doing a run-through of your performance piece is helpful.
You can also try to pick out the melody of your favorite pop song! Give your fine-motor skills and your brain this short-term visit together instead of creating a long length of time between practice sessions/lessons. This keeps your skills alive, rather than starting all over again in the fall.
