On her rehearsal attitude:
“I didn’t scream or yell. Maybe I didn’t provide the experience that a musician may have wanted or expected during that time, but I was straight-forward, direct, and about the business at hand….During the time in question, I also believe I was playing a lot of new music with controversial content. FOR ME, rehearsal was about readying myself for the battle I knew I was entering into for simply not allowing a system to pimp me. If I was on edge, I had good reason to be.”
I’m a firm believer in talking to people a certain way in the work environment, especially if you’re giving orders. A little kindness can go a long way.
But I also understand being direct about what you want, especially if you’ve been controlled in a lot of ways before. For this specific instance, I get it.
