School Band vs. the Supposed Idea of Having School Orchestras

In junior high, I moved where the school had band. In previous schools, I learned to read music and watched musicals and some other activity. I said I played piano, and I was not told to start an instrument. The band director said I could play the tuba part on the electric keyboard, and I did. In high school, I was accepted into a program called Talented Arts and was in Talented Music, for piano. The band teacher tried to get me in band, but I still wanted to play violin. What am I doing now? Playing the violin. I follow an orchestra online and “feel like I’m not good enough.”
