I would like to remind you that many honor ensembles and area youth bands/orchestras require membership in your school's band program. This may or not be the case where you are.
A little advice- as a senior I have challenged my director a few times over the years; I have to say that he was being a jerk, you have to learn to deal with it. My director talks with me privately when we have an altercation...and afterwards always says that he sees my point but "Any other director would have thrown you out of class." So just be careful and realize that you probably need your program, and convince him that he needs you.
And if you sorry is completely true you are right, because as someone else already pointed out music is aural and not too visual unless you look sloppy.
P.S. I hope this made sense; I just got back from a golf tournament and its late.
