I know it sounds dumb but I use stickers. I find a kid doing something right and I just politely say "thank you for sitting up straight." Later on during the class I hand a kid a sticker and gently say "thanks for pointing your trumpet straight." I have them put their sticker on their folder/binder and they can start a collection. The positive aspect of this will eventually reap good results. I get my music stickers at Music in Motion. I'm sure Amazon has them, too.
