I'll start this off by saying I REALLY don't want to march next year but my school will make me if I do band and not doing band is not a choice because it's a requirement for the orchestra I'm in right now. So, I need some help. I've honestly never seen a marching band perform other than in a parade. So I don't know how it works at a football game. I also don't understand football. I love sports, but football is one that I have never gotten into. Will I need to understand the game to understand when my band will play? Does the band always play at the same time? Is it hard to learn all of this stuff? Can anyone explain to me how a marching band operates?
