Folks, in another incarnation on the net, I am the member of a flute listserv (I'll keep the name a secret.)

I see this like any other subject or extra curricular. The teachers teach the basics required for the students to be successful with the curriculum and the coaches or sponsors teach the skills necessary for the student to participate or compete effectively in the sport ot activity.

Thanks for answering Sherry, and I agree with you.


What I think is odd, is that everyone on this flute listserv seems convinced that band teachers can't and shouldn't teach the basics of playing any instrument.

I'm guessing this has to do with promoting their likelihood of consistent income. If the perception is that kids need lessons, like parents pay for dance, gymnastics
