If you sound like s**t, it won't matter whether you are inside or outside. I really enjoyed marching and I don't think it affected my playing ina negative way. If a band director is asking you to play non-musically, then he isn't a very good band director. With my students, I try to make music inside and outside. There is no shame in not wanting to march, just admit it. And if you don't like it that your school requires you to march, go to another school, it's a free country. God bless America!
