So, I'm going to high school next year and and can't decide if I should join marching band or not. I don't want to join it because it combines the two of my most hated things in the world: moving around a lot and carrying heavy stuff. However, I want to join marching band because they say it's fun, I LOVE to play music, and my band director was guilt-tripping me into joining it XP. I don't know what I should do! What do you think I should do? I don't have enough space to type all my questions!
Do it for sure. I say this to everyone but 100% join marching band. I’ve never met someone who entirely regretted joining marching band. The heavy stuff and walking is unavoidable and really shitty. Like oh my god. No matter what instrument you play its painful as fuck to be in set for an hour. But its all worth it. The gratification and reward that comes with pyshical and mental discipline will be something you’ve never experienced before and you will get stronger and it will get easier. Just give it a try this season. I promise you, you will fall in love with the sport.
