What's the Funniest Thing that Ever Happened to You in a Music Classroom?
St. Clair, Cliff
Teaching Music, v11 n4 p77 Feb 2004
Cliff St. Clair is the band director at Sheldon High School in Sheldom Iowa. In this article he describes an incident that occurred his first year of teaching. He was hired for a part-time band position. On the days that he was not under contract, he substitute-taught in a number of nearby schools. He was called to take a junior high choir that had a reputation of being musically excellent, but difficult on subs. The regular director was a firm disciplinarian and had a well-established rehearsal routine. Pandemonium reigned whenever he wasn't there, and many substitutes refused to take the class. Cliff St. Clair briefly describes his experience with this class in this article.
