I recently subbed for a band director. I had both middle school and high school classes.
The middle school band got to watch a movie. The picked The Land Before Time. A large number of them (mostly boys) laughed loudly when Littlefoot's Mother died. I know they were just trying to show off how "tough" they are, but it was still disturbing.
One high school "Music Appreciation" class picked Star Wars: Return of the Jedi over the other Star Wars movies. This isn't a choice that I can understand.
I started this blog in March 2011. Just recently I passed 10,000 hits. I think that's pretty good for just shy of two years.
Thank you all!
