Unfortunately, not all band directors are really good guys.
Most ARE very knowledgable, and know how to work with people.
A few are ignorant, a few have no idea how to work with people, and a few are even crooks. (These worst band directors take "kick-backs" from music stores when they help bad-guy music stores "rip" parents on instrument purchases.)
We can't know from your recounting of events if your band director is a knowledgable guy or an ass. As far as we know, maybe you were being an ass, or maybe both of you were.
Again, none of us were there.
Good luck with your future relationships with conductors.
