Mini rant/vent: Okay last year my school got a "new" music teacher (the super intendents wife) and last year was .......... okay, decent for choir, not so great for band. Now this year I regret taking band, i'm only in it to say I stayed in since 5th grade. I literally feel depressed and hopeless in that 45 minutes, it may not look it, but it's miserable. The only instrument she knows how to play is the clarinet, so most other instruments don't really get much help. I tell her this one song is to fast and I can't it count properly, and it makes me light headed every time. She says we're playing it again, with like a CD and that's to fast and doesn't help what's so ever. I hate band, I really hate that the only instrument she can actually help are the clarinet. The CD doesn't help me, I play low brass, the trombone. And choir to try and help the parts, she rewrites the music for you guessed it clarinet, sounding worse than Squidward at times. I just no longer enjoy band, all because of her, she's a nice woman, but should not be teaching band.
