Besides calling home, lunch detention here works well along with writing essays during class about musical things on their grade level. Get a notebook filled with essays they have to copy and also with essay topics they have to think on and write about. All of our students have a chromebook, so sometimes I have them research composer or music history links and write about what they read. If these steps do not solve the issue, a trip to the assistant principal takes place. Good Luck
