I recently got a band back together. I've been playing with the drummer since June, trying to find a band with him. I was 16 when this started, he was 15. Last weekend I finally found a guitarist/singer willing to work with us. He's 17 and lives on the opposite side of town (both guys live about 40 minutes away in opposite directions). We practice at my house, and today I decided to cancel because almost everyone in my house has a virus. I asked the drummer if we could consider Wednesday, and he said "weekdays are not an option because I started (2 AP classes) and have a lot of homework". I can't help but feel a little annoyed. I know they're tough classes and he's occasionally (not presently) involved in theatre work. But my last band of the same age practiced 3 times during the week and during the weekend for 4 or 5 hours at a time. One guitarist got up at 5 to go golfing, did a full day of AP classes, and went to personal training twice a week and still managed. The other is in IB classes (regarded as much harder annd time consuming than AP) and worked 20+ hours a week at Publix. I haven't told the drummer about these expectations yet because I wanted to ground myself with a reality check first.
