During rehearsal, the high school Music Director was beside himself. The cymbal player in the band was constantly coming in at the wrong time with his cymbal clash.

The young man maintained that his entry point gave a much better effect and that he wouldn’t play it as written.

When the Music Director was asked by the Principal why he fired the young musician from the band, he replied, “It was a simple case of cymbal disobedience.”
