Re: How to "have fun" when my band absolutely sucks
I make them play continuously when they won't stop talking. If they talk when you have them play then it's an easy discipline/grade measure as they're off task and should lose daily grade and have consequences with the principal. Pick really simple music and make them play all of the time. Don't lose your cool with them. Develop relationships before and after class. Make them enter the room correctly every time.
