Here is how you solve the problem in about 30 seconds:

Our policy is that if a student has an “excused absence” (sick, funeral, etc etc) they must do two things: 1. Playoff all of the music for us for a grade. 2. Write a paper (usually a 5-6 page research paper on a music topic, or 2 pages on each selection we are performing). You find out pretty quickly who is actually sick….if they are really sick, they don’t typically mind doing the make up work.

If they are “unexcused” (I did not feel like coming, had to work, etc) It’s an automatic 3 letter grade drop.
