As many of you know, (because maybe you’ve seen and heard us in the mornings!) I’ve opened up the music room before school starting at 7:30 every day of the week except Tuesday (because that’s when middle school band rehearses.) Students are invited to come in and practice alone, play with each other, and/or get help from me or older students.
Last week our numbers of students were 16, 19,18, and 16. That BLOWS MY MIND.
I’ve been keeping track of the students who are coming and after Friday’s session I listed the names of every student who has come at least one time. 28 out of the 30 students studying an instrument this year have attended!
Here are some low-quality pictures I snapped while running around between 19 students!
Not sure if getting your student to school those extra minutes early is worth it? Please watch this AWESOME Ted Talk, and hopefully you will be swayed.
