Re: Athletics vs. Band
Why is it that way? Because it's our society in America that athletic achievement is far more important than anything else.
I am having an issue with some of my students being more interested in attending athletics practice rather than mine. How is it that athletics gets kids so engaged and band not so much??
I would appreciate ideas as to what you do to keep your numbers up and program going with students being engaged and loving band.If I'm too relaxed and back off, I'm afraid things won't get done.
I push kids to be better in band but I get a lot of resistance. Region is hated by most kids despite me giving incentives and grading throughout on scales and sections. In general, what do you do in your band program??? Suggestions appreciated.
