We are going to need to rethink everything if we want to thrive in this new world. If we try to do everything the way we've always done it, bands will shrivel. I am not entirely sure what the answer is yet, but I'll share if I figure it out.
I'm pretty sure that leading with compassion is going to be paramount.
Our band parent story since my son is in high school band:
We ended up missing the first few days of band camp because of an out-of-state wedding (parents of the bride...). We enjoyed a few days of vacation-type stuff on the way home.
Send our poor jetlagged kiddo to band camp as soon as we could. Got home at 2:00 am and had him there at 7:30, lol.
