  • Excuse me, but it doesn't matter who you are, this isn't okay. 
Let me tell you why band deserves a little more respect in this world. Do you know how to play an instrument? It takes skill. You have to learn all the fingerings (or slide positions or whatever else). Every instrument requires a certain embouchure that you have to get just right (or hand position. I'm not trying to belittle any instruments. I just only play woodwinds). We read sheet music, which is basically just another language. A bunch of lines and circles that translate into notes and fingerings and sound and music. And into the marching aspect of it: We then memorize that music and play it WHILE marching on the field with proper technique, horn angles, visuals, and all that physical stuff! We march on that field for 9 minutes, but we can't lose our breath. No! We keep playing. With dynamics and emotion.
We practice like any other respected sport. Out in the hot sun, sweating, moving, memorizing where you're supposed to be and when on the field and getting there when we're supposed to. It takes hard work. Give us some respect. We are musicians and athletes combined.
There's an article someone wrote. I put the link in my bio, if you want to read it.
