Re: Eliminating indoor
Is being a well rounded percussionist whatís best for the kids or for your personal philosophy? I know it sounds harsh that way, but out of your 20+ kids how many of them are going to further their music education after high school? If your program has been successful then your kids should be growing. If concert percussion is what you want them to be better at then perhaps concert class is an option??? Iím not a fan of the long hours or scheduling of indoor, but if you have willing and dedicated kiddos who love the activity and are growing as musicians why stop them just because you donít care for that aspect of percussion? I had the same philosophy you have when I started as well, but after giving it a chance and learning how to incorporate indoor into my program, it has pushed me out of my comfort zone and made ME a more well-rounded percussion director.
