Re: Monday evening rehearsals
Until you've dealt with kids that were required to "walk their pigs" at a certain time by the parents you don't understand the small town dynamic. It's a big deal getting time from these kids. You have to pretty much look the other way when they're not there and yea there will be kids who take advantage of the situation. I know that the kids who do football and band a lot of times would come to my rehearsal hurting and gassed. The more efficient we are with out time in band the better because these kids do actually do a ton of stuff usually. The poster below who indicated they made it happen without after school rehearsals is on the right track.
