As a band, we expect others to accomplish our goals for us. We assume that someone else is going to play loud enough to cover for our own lack of sound. We assume that the effort around us somehow combines to something so great, our own effort is not needed. We assume that our director’s advice is for everyone else so that we do not have to take it.

In everything we do, we must wait on the last individual to be ready, who waits on everyone else. We assume that if we are not last, we are not slowing down the rehearsal when in reality, when you are…
