    How do you teach the littles to hold the mallets correctly and play in the center of the bar?
    I only have 6 barred instruments for classes that range from 11 students to 25 students. How do you keep all students engaged especially ones that need extra support for waiting patiently? I teach at a school with a lot of special needs (down syndrome, autism, adhd, etc.)
