Re: Typical 4A Band Size
It's my first year here, We're small also, 65. I've been told the band has been 85ish in the past but last couple of years has gone down due to lack of recruitment at junior high so our goal is to recruit the crap out of 5th grade. Going every day next week to start recruiting and getting students excited about music.
I am trying to see what a typical 4A band size is. I know we are small compared to must bands in our region, and I want to see statewide.
Plus how do you reward students and motivate the students. We have a community that bows down for football (and nothing wrong with that, they are good this year), but for anything else it's like pulling teeth.
Any suggestions. I am trying to build a program, but it's just not building, and that used to be my specialty.
