Rob and Bailey,

Thank you so much for the responses and the insight!

It seems like you have an excellent program/schedule on your hands! I really love how you approach working with your young percussionists. While I am a flutist, I grew up in a family with percussionists. When working with percussionists, I have found 98% of them cannot read music on the treble clef staff unless they are taking private lessons. I think it is great that you have requirements before allowing them to participate in band. There are simply too many instruments and techniques that get overlooked on a daily basis in the band room for the percussion section.

Thanks again for all the help! I’ll be sure to contact you if I have any more questions!
