 RE: teaching alternate fingerings

Actually, many people with small hands find the so-called alternate fingerings for the mid-staff B and C to be easier and more comfortable for them than the "standard".

When my older daughter was a beginner, I encourage her to use whichever worked better for her but her band director had a 'hissy fit' because it was "backwards." Of course I (tactfully) ignored her and my daughter was 1st chair in the elementary and junior high bands under this same director. She could play rings around the other kids due to my insistance that the various fingerings were equally important and that she practice passages several ways.
