"Use it or lose it!"
You have made a significant contribution to the education of your child.
Such as music, if you exercise your body regularly, there should be a great health benefit, but only because you live in the 10 months, does not mean you can stop the exercise for 2 months and keep your Health, where he was the last day you worked.
No, definitely not.
What really happens to your health begins to deteriorate very slowly. Is it a number of months, and all your hard work has been reversed.
The same thing happens in music. Your child (and you) who have worked their instrument / voice of the school year, and if they are out of summer classes, they lose because they do not use it all summer.
Imagine what would happen if you do not exercise your waistline, and what I ate for 2 months. (If you're one of those who can eat cheeseburgers and French fries all the time and never get a book, Please tell me!)
Thus, to use (your music lessons, that is) and continue all the time throughout the summer, so you do not lose it! Learn new things more easily when your child has more time on their hands should try, without juggling home.
