School’s out and little league just finished up which means our busy schedule just slowed down. I’m all in favor of a little break during the summer but I also want to avoid the “I’m bored” whine, so we try to sign up for at least one fun activity. Outside sports are not an option during the summer because we like to avoid heat exhaustion! There are some fun indoor activities to consider, like gymnastics, art classes or music lessons.
Quinn loves jamming with Peter and after the fantastic year he had in kindergarten, I think he’s old enough to really learn from a music instructor. The music instructor is actually more of my concern now because we don’t know anyone that teaches music. I know some people are comfortable finding services on craigslist but I am not one of them, especially potential instructors for my child!
Luckily I was just introduced to a company that can help. TakeLessons.com connects families with private music teachers, arts instructors and academic tutors nationwide.
Every instructor is extensively interviewed and trained. Plus they conduct annual criminal background checks. The company has worked with 30,000 students nationwide since 2006, so I feel confident they have a good system in place to find quality instructors.
With over 30 lesson types available, including guitar, singing, piano, drums, violin, dance, acting and academic tutoring, they have just about everyone’s interest covered.
TakeLessons.com offers both in Home and in Studio lessons. I really appreciate the fact they have a 100% Money Back Guarantee and no long-term commitments. You can switch your schedule, teacher or instrument at any time. We aren’t there yet with the boys but I remember my friends wanting to switch instruments all the time in elementary school. It must have drove their parents bonkers! 😉
Online math and Academic Tutoring via Skype is also available. Sometimes kids need to catch up or want to get ahead over the summer, with an online service it’s easy to fit tutoring sessions into your family’s schedule!
