I recently had to quit my band because i failed 2 classes. My dad won't let me go to band practice so i just quit. Has this ever happened to one of you guys?

Not sure why your dad would punish you by making you quit something that is productive and could potentially lead to a career..
#3
No.


Sucks to be you though.

One thing my parents would never do is take away my guitars, or, if i was in band, make me quit. My dad is quite the opposite, he really wants me to join a band.

Ooooo...don't say that word when I'm around!

Me: Dad can I buy myself a PS3 with my own money I've saved up?

Dad: No, do someting productive, like learning guitar

And here I am, while 2/3 ppl in my class have a PS3, only I and 2 others play guitar well

he's got a point though. it's always a lame party when the guy who brings his PS3 is cooler than the guy who brings his guitar.

Thanks

And I'm not saying that I would still trade my guitar for a PS3. I can still afford a PS3, but my parents won't let me buy one, so right now I go: Eat, Sleep, Guitar, Repeat.

Lol, I get the same:

Me: Dad, can I have a new amp? Or a Whammy/Wah Pedal to play my favourite bands?
Dad: No, practice more

I think your dad wants you to buy an Xbox 360.

No, I've quit all my bands on my own.

My dad wants it to much and he moans at me whenever I leave a band or we deform.

You're dad probably has a point. If you're failing 2 classes, it either means you're a ****ing retard, you're lazy, or you don't have enough time to get all your work done and study. And maybe he knows your band sucks, and is trying to protect you.
Peace.

You're not quitting a band by force. You're being forced to quit a band.

Quitting a band by force would be storming in, yelling "I QUIT!" and punching your drummer in the face. Then going to Brighams to celebrate a successful band departure with a delicious strawberry ice cream cone.

That's exactly what I thought. As much as I want to punch my band members in the face, I wouldnt quit by force.

I really want to do something "by force". And this idea would be epic.

i was forced to take a two month hiatus during football season. practice interfered with game day, and sense it was only two months, i didnt mind taking the time off. two months of no band is fair in exchange for ten months with it imo.

Parents should be the ones encouraging you to play instruments, or express yourself in whatever way. Playing in your band probably helps relieve stress and gives you that needed break from school and the like. Just try working a bit harder in school and explain to your parents that it's something you honestly enjoy, and ask him to give you a little more time to improve your grades.

Say your dad likes reading the paper. Ask him how he'd feel if you took the paper away from him for not making $200,000 a year. I know it's not exactly the same with grades, but he should get the idea.
