"It's not like you can just decide "We're military now" as a band and be successful just like you can't decide "We're going to be a successful band now."
Success takes time, effort, and GOOD TEACHING."
I answered and gave an example. You for some unknown reason, took personal offense (seems to be common in today's polarized nation). Then, you went on some tirade and demanded to be shown still another example, and another and on and on. Bottom line, no number of examples will convince you because you have your mind made up, and you know what? That's fine, run with that. But you were and are still wrong. I lived in Huntsville when they were still corps style and they were going through directors. I remember the big push for them to go back to military. They did in fact, have immediate success, so you are wrong, again. Unless, you define success as winning the state marching contest, getting Honor Band and placing first at any and all festivals. If so, I find that a little scary.
