first of all i would like to say i am an active band member, meaning i am in the pep
band, afterschool jazz band, marching band, as well as the symphonic band. the only
two band activies that my school offers that i am not a part of is the jazz combo,
and the in-school jazz band.
i love the other band members at my school, exception of andrew (clarinet), sam
(clarinet), krystina (color guard), and a couple people here and there. i go to a
huge school so for me the best way to making friends is through band.
though i have to say, outside of band, some people are such jerks and just plain
stupid. those are the people who gives us the bad reputation.
for example, three of the brass players i know, lets call the frechhorn, tuba1 and
tuba2, (we do describe people by their instrument) either way, the three of the were
dumb enough to get trashed. and someone ratted them out. so now we band members are
known as school as the idiots who were dumb enough to get caught.
but i think it is sooo unfair. as band-ies, they were taken out from two concerts,
contest, state quailifiers, as well as the inablity to march next season. if it were
athletes, they wouldnt have gotten such a severe punishment. i know so because i am
supposively best friends with the quaterback at my school, and lets just say he has a
big mouth. either way, tuba1 is a senior so it wouldnt matter to him. but frechhorn
and tuba2 are top players as well as section leaders, so they just lost that. though
i do have to say they are idiots for drinking in the first place, but yeah.
to any other band geeks out there, anyone have similar stories?
