Hi Everyone,

I only have about 60 kids returning to band next August and so I decided to put them in one group instead of the usual splitting into one advanced and one intermediate group. I justified this because most all of the 60 are young players anyway (few "superstars" to be bored with easier music), the kids who did not produce in beginning band quit anyway, and I thought the kids would be more motivated by the full band sound.

I am now having "buyers remorse" at this decision.

Any thoughts?

Either way works.  Make certain to plan for the advanced students and have them be responsible for the musicians that you put in their care and take time to train them as leaders.  This is the best possible way.  Even if there is a split, it works great if you train them to "Create Musicians." 

This is how I like to handle it.  Takes some rhetoric and some major molding though. 

Good luck.

Playin' the blues is an amazing process for young musicians and these folks just want to jam al the way to their cases!
