I upload recordings, practice notes for parts...etc.
We're 15 days away from a concert and not a single ensemble or piece is half way there. They have had the music for a decent amount of time.
I hate that in my school if it's not fear given grades they won't do the work. The concept of making music for the joy of music is another language to them.
It's exhausting and no fun teaching classes because I'm stuck teaching simple rhythms and note reading. I'm constantly reteaching the minimums.
We do full ensemble and sectionals.
I'm about to sit down and write out play along tracks, but I doubt they will use them.
Any one have any creative ideas? High School...
