This may not be of any help to you as your part of the country has low internet access but we apply: google classroom, Smartmusic.com, Teoria.com, Sight-Reading Factory. We had a small group of students (5) who picked up a worksheet packet (30 pages) at the school's main office and completed it for credit.

Does anyone know generally how much you should get as a raise per year?

I’m currently stuck on the option and have to make a decision of where to go by Friday…

I just need to vent. We are on our what, the 5th surge of this virus. We’ve been going through this for 2 years. We have seen first hand as well as experienced first hand the lingering grief and toxic stress. Why can’t we just have a mandate, under the National Emergency Act and start the process of true recovery.

Hot take: As of now an 18 year old would be better off studying the trades (HVAC, plumbing, electrician) than overpay for a saturated white collar job/ 4 year degree that may or may not be automated by the time they graduate.

Was reminded last week of my best off-the-wall response in class. True story.

Me: “You have to write two books first.”
1. 10 seconds of silence until first lightbulbs go off.
2. 30 seconds until a percussionist went in for the “ba-domp-ding” on snare and cymbal.
3. End of class heard one student say “I still don’t get it.”
MS kids are awesome!

So my ISD split me between a HS and a MS that recently reopened. I'm the only MS band director. The MS decided, without consulting me, to use the band hall as a classroom and after school enrichment "daycare". AKA added desks and tables. How do I approach this? I feel it is not OK in the slightest. I feel the band hall should reflect the goals, discipline, and culture of the program. Not as an empty classroom.

What are your thoughts and opinions?

Band teachers... how do your virtual band classes work? I’ve been doing music theory with students via google classroom and kids constantly ask to play instruments. It seems like a nightmare to have 30 kids with instruments online because of the delay in sound. Help plzzzz
