Re: Beginner Band: student jobs in class
I had jobs for individuals who would set chairs, another would set music stands, another made sure my music and baton were prepared, one would make sure I had cleaning spray and paper towels; I even had one kid who loved to empty trash. At the end of class we would have a race to stack chairs and stands so the next class could do the same.
In my case it started with a kid who was struggling and I explained to him there's a place for any kid in my band who wanted to be there. Other kids noticed that I trusted him to do things and they asked for jobs as well.
