It's interesting that most musicians learn music in this order-

1. the correct fingering and the correct harmonic.
2. the beginning of a note and the end.
3. the dynamics of the note.

and somewhere down the list they work for the correct intonation.

Have your players buy and use a tuner before the next gig.
