To All The Aspirationalists: Embrace Your Fletcher

by bxrtley

Terence Fletcher has an amazing philosophy, but how he executes his credo of greatness is questionable. Call me a sadist, but I respect both his theory and application. Yup, I said it. For the arrogant “star on the rise” who does work their ass off, it takes more than critical feedback. As a former drum corps instructor, I never hurt a corps member, but have expressed extreme bouts of passion and struck the air many times. When I hear Doubt whispering or Fear barking, I now ascribe it as my Fletcher testing me. Pushing me beyond my limits. Hi, Fletcher.
