Default Band in School

I know that band in junior and high school have always been looked at as being geeky or whatever. But i remember when i was in high school the marching bands and concert bands were alot bigger then they seem to be now. As i have been going to some of these high school football games i notice that the band is considerably alot smaller then they used to be.

SO i guess the question is, whats so wrong with the Band???

and more or so, is playing an instrument so bad?

Crap, i know i had more to ask but it is just slipping my mind right about now.

it depends on the school district... some get good funding for band and others have budget cuts and the arts get pushed aside... but i heard that texas funds bands pretty damn good... theres a problem with california because of our deficit... so many music teachers get laid off... sad... i used to be in marching band and have some friends in high school wo are still in it... i love watching big marching bands... i think its dope... but there are a lot of after school music teachers like in some sort of YMCA... over here they have this program funded by the city where you learn a mariachi instruement... pretty dope too... but its for high school kids and younger...

I personally never cared if people thought I was a geek or not. To be honest, kids at both my middle school (junior high in other areas) and high school never "bullied" or ganged up on people just because they were in band. Sure they may have teased a bit but nothing serious.

Back to the question though, I think it may have to do with the school and program director. I know when I was in middle school, the program director was running the damn thing. I mean the program was so bad ass and he did so well with us, that all of the theme parks would ask him to come back with his "band" and play for them. I got to go on so many trips and free entrances to the parks because of that chet. Luckily, it was after I left middle school that he left and the program just wasn't the same. The numbers declined and the new director was playing some boring ass music and the concerts were lame as hell.

High School was just the same, the first year - we had a whack ass director. The next year they changed director and shit was back on track.

I played the Clarinet in Middle School up to freshman year of high school, then I figured I prefer girls blowing me than me blowing into an instrument.
