Re: Celebrities in Band
This is why I stopped using the "celebrities who were in band" a long time ago. It isn't relevant to kids today. In fact, I don't think any kid ever said, "I want to be in band because was in band!" I use it more of an anecdotal fact later on. "Hey, French Horn player who is also a Star Wars fan, did you know young Obi-Wan Kenobi played French horn? So did Mace Windu?" That sort of thing.
Probably good for the desired assignment that is probably for high school. If you want a history lesson.
But, 99% of the people on this are irrelevant to the kids of 2020. This list is from the 1980's and 90's. Who is Debbie Reynolds? Michael Dukakis...Hal Linden...
Please don't use this for beginner recruiting. Find people from the 21's century.
I used most of these people myself when recruiting in the 80's and 90's so I'm not some young guy complaining. I'm an old guy saying we have to keep things relevant to the kids we have today to establish a relationship.
