Re: Small School Band Help
It is definitely not an easy thing to do. You are going to lose some kids off the bat, then you will lose more after the first year. Focus on your beginners, and build up from the bottom. It will be a constant battle for many years (3-5 years) but will eventually pay off. LOVE the kids that stay with the program, then LOVE them some more. Build relationships, not just with the kids in the class, but the kids outside of the class as well. DON"T GIVE UP!!!!
