Re: Transfer student in the middle of the semester
We do not accept beginners after the first few weeks. However, we are blessed with a beginner seventh grade class, which I know a lot of people do not have.
If I accepted a student, I'd need a parent conference where they agree to have the student come before school or after school every day for two weeks to work with you, or someone on your HS leadership team, to fill in the gaps with reading music, embouchure formation, etc.
Hi! Do you gentle folk have any suggestions/advice on how to help a transfer student catch up in a beginning band class (a student who has never had ANY musical experience)?
