Re: Another One Bites the Dust
This year more than any those 3 days might make a difference. Not just for a 1 but for any band to be better. You are making up rehearsals since last March. Your 8th graders probably haven't been to a contest and now they might be playing and sight-reading at the varsity level. 3 days doesn't seem that big until you figure you have lost 90 days of rehearsal and teaching from last year and this year isn't starting off with a bang so.....
I would agree in a normal year, (I never went on Wednesday), a few rehearsals wasn't a big deal but after losing months of instruction I think I would choose rehearsals and teaching over staring at a computer. That's just me though.
