Just a thought: when someone is doing a job (I’m talking music here), rather than being envious or sad that you didn’t get chosen how about taking joy in their work? I find that a very good way to handle things.

Try it. You might like it!

Can you imagine if some actor was practicing lines and another actor started saying those same lines? Or how about a musical theater lead singing a song and hearing someone else sing the same thing? I doubt (I hope!) those things are never done. So this is just a gentle (not really) reminder to refrain from playing someone else’s solo as they are warming up. Seriously. Just. Don’t. Do. It.

It’s rude. It’s frustrating. And it’s immature behavior.
