However, our band director was awful. The man was an incompetent and blithering idiot. A paranoid incompetent blithering idiot, with control issues.
I enjoyed it very much though. There was a point where I was considering playing trombone for a living, but I decided to become an actor instead. XD
I still play trombone in a community orchestra. We're working on a concert where we're playing Rimsky-Korsakov's Russian Easter Overture. I have a solo.

And I don't know if this thread really belongs in the music section actually, it seems to me this is less about the music and more about the social aspect of band (which is hard to understand unless you were a band kid), making it fine for a off topic chat section.

I played the baritone horn for one year in the 7th grade
it was pretty cool, I liked it, but I kinda sucked at it

when I got to highschool I went into colorguard, although I sometimes wonder how different my life would be if I stuck to my instrument.
I would be a completely different person.

but anyways. did CG for three years, quit after my jr. year because my band was crazy strict, and I wanted my own freedom again, also I didnt have the money.

*_* Band. I love it, I love this thread. ^^ At my school I'm in Senior Concert Band, Senior Jazz Band and Poco Meno Mosso (A.K.A The Woodwind Quartet); short form, The Poco Frans. I play Bass Clarinet =D Although now I'm switching schools and I can only be in The Poco Frans; and maybe a new Band. Who knows. ^^
