they-call-me-elvis → O great and glorious prophet of the instrument world, how compatible is an alto, flutist, pianist girl with a tenor boy? I shall send thanks by offering a goat sacrifice through fan mail.

You know I usually hate compatibility asks, but when you start offering up the goat sacrifices I get the thrill of the hunt coursing within me.

You’re probably very compatible, especially because you’re an alto and not a soprano (sopranos and tenors are usually a no go unless there’s something to offset the anger of the gods) but you might want to pick up the slide whistle as an extra precaution. 

#I'd need a blood sample from both of you to be one hundred percent sure

Music major? More like binge eating at 2 AM because your free time is spent practicing and the dining hall closes at 7:30.

Anonymous → I'm a very competitive flute player and female vocalist (alto). I play in a professional orchestra, city band, and my high school band. The newcoming freshman always irritate me. What advice can you give to me to help get along with the freshies?

Try to figure out why it is that they bother you so much. Is it some deep down fear of unknown competition, or is it something else? Everyone jokes about hating freshman, but most of the time it’s only a specific few. Try to remember that you were once a freshman, and that someday they’re going to grow up. For now, just try to be a kind and supportive member of the section. You were in their place once, and they’re still learning. Be understanding and open minded. You might make a friend.
