I'm with you on this. I did away with practice records years ago, and my band, and my life, has gotten better since. I'm no longer chasing these records, and the kids are enjoying band more, and getting better for it. I've gotten where, for me beginners, I have a weekly test which they need to achieve, but my older kids, I work with in the classroom. It requires me to be off my podium a lot, and, frequently, I need to set up a lesson with individuals, but it's far less of a chore than to constantly chase down the records that I know half are lies, and it's a "gotcha" grade for the ones who didn't do it. |
