Ok, I'm fed up at gettin' yelled at. Yeah, I'm a young lead player in terms of yrs of expeirence, but I know there is more to it than "high notes". In class I get yelled at for not making line of the music. I try but no one follows even when I plead, beg, state, and finally yell. Then in lessons when I'm solo and do play with line they yell at me for not playing that way in class though I do, no one just follows. I've even recorded myself to check it out. Some passages are "piano" and I completely dissapear in the mix cause everyone is blowin their "fortetissimo". Then the band stops and the director yells at me for not leading, I FRIGGIN' AM! If the rest of the stupid band would follow what's on the friggin' page then you'd friggin' hear me!!! WHAT DO I FRIGGIN' DO?!?! GRRRRRRRrrrrrrr... I'm off to the range. Yes, I've told the director this. Yes, I've told all the sections this. Nothing changes... a few more months and I'm done with this place, Thank God.
