I know what it's like to be the last chair in band or what it's like to be the worst marcher on the field. But if you work hard and put effort into becoming a better player then you will succeed. I went from last chair in sixth grade to first chair at all-state my senior year and to getting a full tuition scholarship to college for clarinet all because I took lessons and worked at improving my skills every day. If I can do it you can to!
