Are you in band? If so, what instrument(s) do you play?

I play clarinet, marimba, some flute and trumpet, and 4 seven years this Sep. piano. I know, I know -- Oops! Almost got like Blair there!

Yep! I've been playing clarinet for 3 years! I started in percussion, but I SOOOOOO do not have rhythm. And I couldn't play the bells for beans. And since our school decided to get rid of the fifth grade band program the yera I was going into fifth grade, I didn't get started until sixth. And now I'll probably be playing for our new church orchestra. (It only has 8 people, lol)

I played piano as a kid. I doubt I could even find middle C anymore. I also played the flute and the guitar. Now, I just play the radio http://www.sitcomsonline.com/ubb/smile.gif

Kewlies! I guess clarinets dominate once again! (Okay, that PROVES I'm in a "Blair" mood.) We have 28 clarinets in our band. It's good when we have melody, but when we have harmony Mrs. G (Our teacher.) has to keep going, "Shh! Trumpets have melody!" It's crazy in there sometimes!

haha, Mr. Stalker has to do that to us. Even though we only have 16 clarinets. LOL, sorry if I'm whining but we never get the melody!
See the songs we're playing are "Louie, Louie", "2 English dances", "The American Spirit", "Sax-o-matic", and " Prehistoric Suite. Their all cool songs but we don't get the melody! We never did either last year...LOL

We're getting ready to go to a contest and clarinets have a solo ineach song we're playing! Actually, I have a solo cuz I'm the only one that's playing 1st clarinet. We're playing 'Jaguar' and 'I Like Mountain Music'. We have like a hole section to ourselves in 'Jaguar'. It's cool!

We're goping to contest in May! I always play first clarinet. Last year I had to fight my stand partner for first, but luckily this year my partner refuses to play first and always wants second. So, even though we're supposed to play a little of both, I never play second. We only have 10 clarinets in our band... it was 21, though. See, first semester 1st and 2nd period (both 8th grade) played together at concerts, this semester we have two seperate concerts. Anyway, for contest we're playing Pevensey Castle and Allied Honor. In Pevensey Castle, everybody has the melody at different parts, and the 1st clarinet melody is really cool. In Allied Honor (in cut time, ugh), 1st clarinet shares the melody with trumpets the entire time.

In elementary school, I played the clarinet. I also played the violin and the bells a year each. ("to expand my horizons...") I played the clarinet for about 3 years. I've always played the piano. I still do.

i played the piano for one year, the flute for 3 mounths, and the french horn for 1 day. I stopped playing the flute bacause it was boring and when my friends dad was dying in the hospital she yelled at my friend for forgetting her flute even though her dad was rushed off that morning. My freind kept playing and i got pissed and never came back... I never officially quit either, just never went back. With the Piano i was too busy. And with the french horn.... I.... Well, my lips were too big. Thats it.

Jinny: Who in the hell ARE YOU!?!?!

CD: I think its best if she talks to someone sober.
Jinny: Yep! Prob'ly a good idea.

Teddy: I dont know... it just seemed intamate.

Do any of you clarinet players ever get tired of trumpets? I do, the always have the melody and play to loud.(in my school band anyway) We had a contest a couple of weeks ago and the judges said that the clarinets should play louder but there are 28 of us and about 30 trumpets playing the loudest they can. And my teacher, Mrs. Cox, tries to give us a song were clarinets have hte melody but she said it is so hard to find one that has good parts for everybody. I play 1st clarinet but I never get any melody parts!

Sometimes I do get tired when the band directors are always working with the trumpets (then again, us clarinets are so good he never has to tune us or go over things with us, lol), but not because the trumpets are loud. Because ours aren't... They're really good about backing off when other people have the melody. In fact, most of the time they don't play loud enough!

05-13-2001, 10:28 PM
OMG, I get sooo bored when they do that! Of course that might be cause those trumpets can't tell and Ab from an A# (or whatever! lol) I even fell asleep once...and then those trumpets had to wake me up! geez

Ok, I've played piano seven years, earning a gold cup from Westark College; trumpet for two years in the school band, earning Most Outstanding Trumpet for both years; picked up the bells, snare drum, clarinet, and flute; and can play most brass instruments, cuz of the trumpet experience. Kenzie (teddys_angel_jinny/AlexzBonner) and I figured out the Division theme song, and I get to play the suspended cymbol and sometimes Big Bertha (base drum) in it! hehee...
