Just wondering what peoples opinion on the best rehearsal style is. Certainly at lower/mid section standard. Do TYRANTS or ENCOURAGERS get the best results? At the top of the top section I assume it's slightly different as the standard of playing is SO high, especially in the North of the country. But lower down where a conductor is trying to get his band from A to B the rehearsals presumably need to be fit for purpose. So does the more aggressive style get results or is it a case of Horse to water and all that. I'd be interested who the Tyrants and encouragers are at the top level in the North as a side note as I haven't ever met any of the highest quality bandspeople from the North and I'd be interested in their respective contest results.
