Bill Swick Bio PicWhen another teacher requests to remove a disruptive student from his/her class, the logical place to move that student is guitar class. And why not, what kid does not love guitar? 

This scenario most often occurs when the class is in its tenth week and moving along quite nicely. Have a plan. More importantly, have a relationship with the counselors. Strike a deal that all “hard to place” students are welcomed in your class as long as they begin the class at the beginning of the year in exchange for not adding students once the school year begins.

When this does happen (no if, but when), go back to my last post and have a plan for the student who is placed into your classroom in week ten. Guitar class is considered a dumping ground by many school counselors….be sure to take control of the situation!
