Oh, I totally get what you are saying. My bd made the mistake with a captain. One of the ones who talked the talk but didnt walk the walk. You know. He has gotten close to no longer being a captain. You have to remember that yes, he is a leader, but he is just like everyone else...as are you...and everyone makes mistakes. What I did was one day I pulled him aside. It was me(dm), our percussion who is also his best friend and him. It was during dinner before a football game. We talked and tried to figure out why he was acting the way he was acting. It worked. Do it a time that you know he can be there. Like during a break or something like that....
"I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason bringing something we must learn. And we are lead to those who help us most to grow, if we let them they will help us in return. Now I dont know if I believe thats true. But I know I'm who I am today because I knew you."

my section leader is terrible. H eabuses his power by doing things he knows he would get punished for, he is a hippocrit (sry can't spell he gives the whole section push-ups for stuff he does all the time), and doesn't understand the purpose of punishment. The mellophones happened to be playing with us (low brass) when a mouthpiece was dropped, so they were told they had to do push-ups (100) with us, as an unlucky problem, having done nothing wrong. Everyone in the section is a better musician and more mature, but he is somehow section leader.
