Things not to do if you are my Orchestra Director Continued

How many times do I have to do this???????? Here we go again…

1. Do not expect everyone to play everything exactly like you play it.

2. Do not expect everyone to remember every little thing about every little note every time they play it.

3. Do not say that you will only direct for the month of October, and then come back in November.

4. Do not plan to play every song if you are going to critic every measure of every song.

5. A one minute break is supposed to last one minute. Last I checked, 30 seconds in not the same as a minute.

Okay, I still think you are a nice person, but really, please, being a good musician is not the same as being a good teacher!
