Beginning Band

This is how I am setting up 4th/5th grade band:

1. I spoke to each class for 5-10 minutes on Friday. I handed out an interest form.
2. Those forms started to come back today. I will meet with each student, evaluate them, and send information home for parents. Rental forms will be included.
3. I will work with teachers to get a schedule that works for everyone.
4. I will go after the stragglers. I hope to get everyone who should be in band on to an instrument.

Ideally this gets each kid on the correct instrument. We get a balanced and happy band.

Thoughts? Anything I should do differently?
