Our administration has nothing to do with it, they stay out of it since band is an after school activity in HS
Peer pressure really works, kids in our band motivate each other, when someone wants to quite we demand seeing the parents, although I must say after 8th grade we rarely have people quitting, usually by 9th and 10th grade students settle down and stay…just need to make it through 5th – 8th grade.
Juniors and Seniors take a trip out of the country together which also help them stick to it, and the others take a trip a year plus they perform around the country.
do you have a tri-m chapter? that will help them stay motivated when they know it’s not all about music only.
