TheEternally Clueless Freshman: We’re all a confused freshman at one point but this one never grows out of it. It’s ½ way into the season and this freshman is still missing the step-off from the first set you learned. They don’t know their dots, they never memorized their music, and they are killing everyone always.
The Saucy Sophomore: This sophomore thinks they’re an upperclassman. No. No, they are not. They are always screaming at everyone to dress center and they probably call everyone–even those older than themselves– “honey.” This sophomore is obnoxious, incredibly conceded, and probably quite untalented. The day they become an actual upperclassman actually terrifies you.
The Hero: This marcher is an amazing musician and everything about their marching is flawless.Instead of boasting it or yelling at you, the quietly, effortlessly flaunt their talent, save the band when everyone is failing, and look at you ever so slightly when you make a mistake. This look is 10 times more powerful than any comment could be. The hero is equally amazing and horrifying.
The Slacking Section Leader: There’s always that one section that can’t get their shit together. This is because they are unfortunate enough to have the slacking section leader. They never plan sectionals, are always more confused than their section, and everyone wonders how they got into leadership.
