Reply To: 6 Kids in band/Don't play/What now?
I have the same issue with a few kids similar to your. I decided to try using the new Sound Innovations book, and it really starts the kids off very slowly. It really gives my special ED students more time and extra practice to learn the basics. For the first 12 exercises they are basically playing whole notes. So it gives me a lot of time to get them playing the correct pitches and fingerings and experience some sort of success.
