Re: Word of advice to HS directors mad about numbers
Why don't the kids want to continue? I'm not saying high school directors need to visit and develop relationships with the students - we certainly do - but why not hold middle directors accountable for developing both skill and a love for playing the instrument within the band experience? That's what I always considered my job when I taught middle school, and we had a very high retention rate.
