Please Don't Quit!

Please Don't Quit!

I’d love to see all my instrumental students stay in band, grow as players, and contribute their talents to our district instrumental program; but realistically there are always a handful of students who quit each year. In this episode of “What Music Means to Me,” I’d like to take a look at some of the factors to consider when trying to decide whether or not a student should continue instrumental music instruction. Maybe you’re a parent of a student in band or strings facing this decision and you’d like some insight, or maybe you’re a younger band or strings teacher dealing with students in this situation yourself and you’d like some perspective. Hopefully I’ll give you some things to help you approach this topic with wisdom and confidence.
