Quick question....why is the HD not in the class the entire time? From my own experiences with a first year teacher for an assistant, I was there the entire time just for this purpose and to guide the ABD in appropriate classroom management (not saying you are doing anything wrong)...and then slowly fade into the background as the fall semester goes on and the ABD is more sure of themselves. This goes double when I was the kids' director the year before. Ask the HD what he did with them last year, do *exactly* what he does every time, and do as much observing as possible of the HD with his band as well.
Most of the issues you are having are simply because: 1. You're the new guy in town, and 2. You aren't the HD.
