Spring Break is almost upon us, and for some school districts it may already indeed be upon us. Many school districts are now engaging (or perhaps I should say disengaging) in a two week holiday instead of the traditional one week holiday. I am wondering how that affects us in the land of the private music instructor and community music schools? One of the schools I am involved with is shutting down for the two week break with no scheduled lessons, the other is hoping to shut down for one week, but how many students will cancel anyway effectively shutting things down and leave us with a nightmare of rescheduling? Does it make good pedagogy to have a two week holiday in the middle of the year? Is your school planning any special events during the break, and if so how is enrollment going?
