Call me a band geek or whatever. I play the tuba, and I really like it as my hobby. Practicing in the heat and bad weather is really a bad thing, but hey, we didn't have to have a competition today or play at half-time yesterday because of tornado warnings and watches.
Mostly because of the lightening and crap.
I really like being in the band and I can't wait until the Concert season comes up for me to learn MORE and EXCITING music! Woohoo!
amen dude, ima Trumpaholic
In the Pass:
Concert Band - Trombone
Marching Band - Trombone
Jazz Band - Trombone
Chamber Orchestra - violin
String Orchestra - violin
Symphony Orchestra - violin (Traveling to Italy this April to perform)
Ford Street band - electric guitar, violin, trombone... I write the songs and stuffs...
Conclusion: I like Orchestra way more than band, probably beucase my school's Symphony Orcestra take the best people from band and string section, therefore no one suck too much.
I like Orchestra cause it have a powerful sound. It is able to play soft and make very beautiful sound when needed, or shockingly power in some other case ( especially in the ending for the Pictures of an Expedition, wonderful music, I really enjoyed playing it last year).
It seemed to me Orchestra music make me more relaxing. And the music actually tell you a story, or describe a feeling, very good sense imagary. If you listen closely, you will hear it. In a piece "Spring" the lightning part and amazing, sound so much like it. In "Priates of the Carribean", (I also played last year), some part, you actually feel that you are on a pirate ship and going full speed toward some location...
I play flute in my school band.
The song are very nice I think and I love performing.
I play Baritone Saxophone, in marching band and concert band. Though sometimes I hate marching band I allways end up loving it, especially when we go door to door and someone hands you a check for $600 US and says, We've been wating for you, or when all the crowd stands up and claps for you. I just love that.
Never been into wind instruments or drums. The whole marching band thing doesn't appeal to me.
