I expect band practice to be pretty terrible at first… at least terrible sounding… since we will all most likely be still pretty terrible at our instruments. But hopefully we can all bond and laugh about it and encourage each other to keep practicing and improve.
I imagine (and I hope) that the most musical of the group will emerge as the leader – helping us to hear when we sound bad and when we are coming in at the wrong time. Hopefully we’ll just have a great leader and no divas. Nobody likes a diva. As long as everyone is committed to the goal of learning to play three songs, and learning to play them well, I think we will be great. But our band needs to bond to be great. Since we haven’t even met as a band yet… we probably need to get started.
It will be challenging to get everyone to the same ability at the same time, so practicing as a band won’t be easy. But that’s part of the purpose of this project. To learn to overcome the challenges.
