Sidetracked

Posted on

I am very dissapointed in myself.  Both rehearsal I did yesterday were a lot of fun, but not much was accomplished music wise.  I let myself lose focus and was in entertain the kids mode more that I was in teach the kids mode.  I hope this did not put us too far behind.  It was not really a conscious decision to do this yesterday, it just kind of happened.  I have been worried  a lot lately about how I am getting a bit too mean in rehearsals, and not enjoying them enough.  I had a blast yersterday in the rehearsals, but how do I balance that with getting the music to where it needs to be.  Sometimes I feel like the kids are not bringing enough to the table, and I beat them down for it, and I cant swear that I am always nice about it.  It’s one of the reasons I have to get out of this.  The transformation the band takes from 1st rehearsal to performance is mind numbing.  Can I relax a bit and still get the same result?  I don’t know.  I am not sure NOW is the time to try it out.  Either way, I was funny yesterday, but pathetic.

    Sometimes, you need to do that. Even though the kids may not have learned as much as you wanted, I bet that the “new” Mr. Granados left an impression. I think kids will work harder for teachers they like. Try to mix in the humor with the teaching.
