I had to add a cymbal line this year. This is our first year having them. I know very little about cymbal lines. My kids are frustrated and down. It's going slower than every other section. Harder to memorize music, harder to add visuals along the way etc. I have sought for help but being in the middle of no where Texas doesn't help. I have over 25 kids in percussion and I can't find a balance to run all sectionals or even full rehearsal while still trying to help them.
Has anyone had experience with this. I want to help them, but my lack of knowledge and their lack of experience is hurting them emotionally.
Any advice is great appreciated.
