There are only 3 (what i would call) young people in my band. (aged 15-16). Sometimes the older members of the band are really patronising, but just because we are younger does not mean we don't know what we're doing. I really enjoy being part of the band and its 2 nights a week where i don't have to sit for 4 hours straight catching up on coursework lol. The conductor recently said that if we notice that someone or a section is playing something wrong then speak up...everyone has a right to. One of the (older) players said that a certain note was out of tune so i said i would listen to it. Later on in the rehearsal i realised she wasn't playing a rhythm right so i told her but she totally blanked me and made me feel really small. Everyone in the band room has a right to tell someone if they're playing something wrong...especially if its the test piece for the areas! Does anyone else feel like this?
