What reasoing did this grandmother use for not wanting her granddaugher to play with the band? Was it because she may have to play a patriotic tune, miss a meeting if she plays at the football games, waste time practicing the
clarinet when she could be out in the fs or studying the wt? What could be wrong about playing in the band? I have never understood this reasoning. It takes disipline to learn how to play an instrument. Learing music and math
takes a lot of brain power. I hope her parents stand up for her and don't allow grandmother to interfere with her playing or being in the band.
