Could be.  On the other hand, I have known a couple of school bands  
that were just as bad if not worse.  That is often what you get when  
rehearsal time has to be fitted into the lunch break once a week.  I  
am sure the Portsmouth Sinfonia has a better conductor than Mr  
Caldwick because they were in time ... mostly.  Or perhaps they simply  
lack the ... what shall I call it ... competitive spirit of Howard's  
school orchestra.
