Your topic isn't dying down...

Its a reality that sometimes parents want the best for their children...and they'll be wanting it so much that they will force their children to do program that, in thier eyes, will stimulate the most "growth".

Parents get a bit too much involved into their children's lives sometimes...in essence they care too much. The child needs to have a choice...same goes for everything, from the early years of youth baseball, basketball...and spanning into the high school life with certain clubs and, in this case, marching band.

Exactly. Just making the point more clear.

Besides, by forcing a child to do somehting, you almost give them a predisposition to hate it, because kids are just rebels that way. I used to have to play tennis and to this day I hate tennis, but I bet I wouldn't if I didn't have to play it. The same probably goes with band. I'm sure there are exceptions but what is the point of making someon do somehting they don't like? If you're in band and don't enjoy it, won't you miss the whole point of the experience?

i remember there was a girl in our guard whos mom made he stay in it and when we found out we were sad that she had been missing out on the fun you could have. the thing i think is worse is when ur parents make u quit for the cost when you really enjoy it. :(

Now, returning to the original topic...

Most directors if not all know that "the students who quit band are the ones who aren't progressing on their musical instrument." The reason most used by students for quitting is "I am not having fun..." (This is the direct result of not practicing...)

These students aren't having "fun" because they choose not to practice. They don't practice and others pass them by. Therefore... they aren't having fun. The choice to practice or not is up to the individual student. Therefore, the choice to have "fun" lies with the student.

As the old coke bottle used to say, "No deposit, No return."

"If you practice, you get better.

If you get better, you play with better players.

If you play with better players, you play better music.

If you play better music, you have more fun.

If you have more fun, you want to practice more.

If you practice more, you get better."
