After an incident tonight at rehearsals and a few other things, it got me thinking about respect towards the conductor and the band in general between players. So, thought I'd start a wee debate to see everyone elses views. Having only been part of bands for about 3/4 years (wind and brass) I don't know what it was like years ago but, from what I do see there isn't the same respect than what there was when I first started. This is more aparent to me with youth or junior bands. I'm sure they're not all disrespectful to their "elders" but some their attitudes towards others and music stinks. I know I'm only 19 myself but I do have a degree of respect for the band and our conductor. You'd think there would be some extent of respect because the reason you go to band is to do something you enjoy with people who share the same interest. Anyhoo, just want to see what anyone elses opinions are.
