Re: No band experience - poor attitude
I have a "review packet" that the entire class works on for about 5 minutes each class period. It takes them from very beginning to intermediate. The experienced players use it as a warm-up and the new kids learn how to play a few notes and rhythms. If they don't come before and/or after school a couple of times a week they will eventually start failing the class.
