Re: Thoughts on a 8 hour rule change
This is a really good point. When I taught at 5A and 6A schools, our bands were split by instrument or by ability all year, so the only time we rehearsed as a full band was after school. We had 8 hours of practice a week. I'm currently at a 3A, and we start at 7:45 each morning in addition to a 2 hour Monday night practice since we share a lot of athletes. I practice a total of 7 hours a week with my full band now. I just get to do more during the school day instead of having to do it all after school.
