Good bad and worse?

Posted: Thu Apr 09, 2009 6:28 pm



The drumline at the high school i am working at is full of good musicians. but they are lazy and dont want to do anything. they play a little and they want to sit down or they just dont try. any suggestions on how i can handle all of this?

light a fire under their butts...tell them how it's gonna be, and what they are gonna do to become better. If they wanna be good, then they gotta set the standards for lines following them. Make sure they know that they need to set the bar, not them striving for a bar above them...just kick their butts...that's how we do it at our school...

Show them a badass Blue Devils video, and say that what's in the video didn't happen through laziness and apathy.

Bring them to a corps show, show them corps videos, or go to the simulcast of quarterfinals this summer. Inspiration is the best motivation by far.
