My marching band goes to Interlochen every year! And we have been for 75 (next summer, 76) years!
Interlochen is a very wonderful place and if I could ever afford it I would love to be involved in a program there and meet people from around the world. It’s only a few hour drive for me! Interlochen is a truly wonderful place I love breathing the fresh forest air and resting in the shade and I feel so at home in the cabins I’d gladly go back any chance I got.
You really don’t want to hear me try and play any brass instrument, for that matter. But probably Tuba because it’s an awesome instrument and it’d be fun to confuse people because I’m small.
This isn’t really a genre but I really like playing dances.
No way it’s not weird at all. You play whatever you want, and play it to your heart’s content~
Simply put: be the absolute best you can be. Practice your hardest until you feel like you’re one of the best in the group. Shine. Make yourself noticed. You’ve got plenty of years left to move up, and you’re more likely to if you show your potential now. If you let yourself drag because you’re upset about your placement, they won’t see any reason to move you up.
Who cares if varsity will be the focus? Do your personal best, because in the end titles don’t matter.
Well I’m kinda biased but I think they have the potential to be awesome. HOWEVER, many trombonists are too busy making rude jokes or doing other things (or being lazy) to practice and there are a lot that do not live up to their full potential. Trombonists generally have a good sense of humor (though usually rude/dirty), and (at least in my ensemble) are usually pretty good friends if you get close to them. The trombonist who puts in a good amount of time practicing will be a true talent indeed.
I sort of just want to hug them all because they all seem like lost unfortunate souls with a contract to the devil.
I get this question a lot and the truth is you can usually mix a couple around, but whichever instrument you feel like you connect the most with/what you play the most/your favorite is the one to go by.
Attractive and really good musicians have the ability to take down a full grown adult by simply playing long tones and they should be avoided at all costs.
