By MARUSN'E COOKSHAW Herald Staff Writer Money problems are the big- gest obstacles faced by an up- and-coming band, says musi- cian Steve Alexander. Mr. Alexander is lead gui- tarist in the five-member Leth- bridge rock group, Tamarax. He is originally from Maine, in the U.S., but has travel- led across Canada and part of the United States as a member of 15 bands, playing vari styles of music. "The musicianship In Leth- bridge has improved in the last three he said. "There are a lot of good groups here ones who can compete wel with those from out of town. "I think there could be more and better groups who could play if there was enough mon ey available. A musician has to make relatively steady wages especially if he's married." While some band member ittempt lo hold down another ob, 'Mr. Alexander has man aged to make a living from his music, averaging to a week income. He agreed that most groups can't live on what they earn en :ertainlng: "There are a lira iled number of places to play.' In town, he estimated two ho- lels, two bars and two cabarets for regular engagements, with occasional school dances. A problem faced by larger groups is that in some estab- lishments, there is a set price for entertainment which must be d i v i d e d among the mem- bers. "This wants to improve its sound by The lack of communication between social agencies is often the reason the learning difficul- ties of elementary school stu- dents are not discovered, says a recently-completed study con- luclcd by the University of The two-year study, conduct ed at three schools in the Pin- chcr Creek school division, rec- ommends the establishment of and information "synthesis centre" to increase communi- cation and, hopefully, solve problem of the student. The problem can't be solved, or even taken into consider- ation, if the teacher is not aware it exists. The study suggests that the central information pool would be fed pertinent details about students and the information would be passed on to those who need it- mainly the teacher. "From the study, we learned Lhat children's learning needs means If the group adding another member, they have to take a cut in pay." He felt the average weekly gross for a band musician was 51-50 per hour, including rehearsal, travel and performance time, Equipment is costly CARAVELLE EXTERIOR PRODUCTS 444 QUALITY PAINTS FINE QUALITY 444 FINE QUALITY 444 SEMI-GLOSS WHITE ONLY QUARTS, SPECIAl EXTERIOR WHITE GAUONS, ONLY EXTERIOR HOUSE PAINT OIL BASE GALLONS GALLONS QUARTS EXTERIOR LATEX 6.95 QUARTS 2.29 2.29 Teachers inducted New teachers of the I-elh- bridge public and separate school systems were officially inducted into the Alberta Teach- ers' Association Wednesday night. The Inductees were informed of the function of the various committees in their local and also received ATA membership certificates and pins. There are 42 new teachers In the public and separate sys- tems this year. The money coming in isn't the only problem. Mr. Alexan- der estimated the cost per per- son in a four-member group for equipment is between and This docs not in- cluria the public address sys- tem, insurance or maintenance. "Equipment costs are exorbi- tant to begin he said. "It depreciates about 50 per cent immediately after it's pur- chased. A person can never get as much out of his equipment as he puts into it." A van or similar vehicle is also necessary, whether owned or rented, for transporting the equipment. "The thing that makes it dif- ficult is that while expenses for equipment, records and music are continually increasing, the wages for musicians stay the same." Mr. Alexander said that a musician practises about 2 hours per week individually and another 10 hours wilh the jroup in preparation for week- end performances. Because most of the working lime Is during the evening, and much of it is spent away :rom home, there is often fric- ion between musicians and their wives and girlfriends. 'She would have to be a super understanding said Mr. Alexander. "She'd need to understand that music has to come first. Music is a very personal thing. "It's necessary to become can be said Myma McGregor, one of three re- searchers working on the proj- ect. "We think that greater communication between agen- cies is the key lo meeting Uiese needs." She said each agency involv- ed is trying to meet Uie needs of the children "but often does not interact or pass on pertin- ent data to other agencies." Dr. Vernon Dravland, proj- ect co-ordinator, said the com- munication model "would bring together and synthesize all in- formation known about a child in various community agencies, with the end result being more help for the student." Brian Frankcombe, superin- tendent of the Pincher Creek school division, supports the- idea of an information co-ordin. ation centre but says the big- gest problem might be financ- ing and finding a co-ordinator for the centre. The study covered 405 chil- dren in Grades 1 to 3. They were not in a special or handi- capped category but were "av- erage" youngsters. It was con- ducted by the U of 1. faculty of: deeply involved emotionally to play well. "In a city this size, when you're forming a group, it's dif- ficult to find people of suffi- cient talent and similar musi- cal interests who are not al- ready involved in a he said. "There are personality clash- es as well.

If they really want to make it big, they'll have to go to a big city, and stay there and play until they do. "There's more money in a big city, but Ihe competition is a lot greater too, and there aren't as many jobs. 'I like the musicians in Loth bridge. The major groups are really quite close, they jam to- gether often. It's friendly thai way, but it makes it difficult for any newcomers to break inlo the circle." Mr. Alexander believes Leth bridge audiences have im proved substantially in their ac ceptance of local groups. "The> are beginning to appreciate lo cal talent more."

It seems that the older peo- ple in town are more easily sat sfied, so long as the right style of music is played.
