Calling all parents I need your help!
Looking for some advice from parents, I’m a young music graduate who currently works at a primary school teaching music, singing, drama ect... I’m looking to set up some arts based summer schools in the Kent area. I've looked and there dosn’t seem to be a whole lot out there involving the arts, particularly music, at a reasonable price point. However I thought who better to tell me what is needed better than parents? So any thoughts or suggestions on any of the following points would be really helpful. Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
•Price points per day what can most afford/ willing to pay
•Length 9-4 are optional late stays a good idea
•Would you be interested in a scheme, where you child was able to spend three or four days learning the basics of an instrument such as clarinet without having to purchase your own?
•For children who already play an instrument would they be interested in a band camp style scheme?
•Would it be a plus if you could come and watch your child perform at the end of their time?
•Do you prefer schemes that run for more than one day, for example and one going mini course of 5 days or are individual themed days better?

Hi just my thoughts price as reasonable as possible, hours to suit working mums so the late stay option would be good, but the early pickup with reduction also good for sahm or part time mums.

Definetely better to loan instrument if not played before as expensive if the child decides its not for them

Children of 8 plus would probably enjoy band camp style lessons.

Both one day and mini courses as its not just about child having fun its sometimes about fitting in with mums work.

Hope this helps. I dont live anywhere near kent mores the pity as my two dd's would love this.

Good luck
