what people think musicians are: people who play musical instruments

what musicians actually are: sleep-deprived, occasionally borderline insane people who spend 50% of the time with their instrument and 50% of the time contemplating the significance of their existence, listening to 300 year old music, and crying

Completely forgot I had this picture from last year’s band camp. The funny thing was, we were practicing the part in our show where we played “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”.

BLOOOOO

WHAT DID I JUST SAY. I’m dying.

I can hear the “bloo”
Even if I don’t march here in the future, I will forever be proud to have been a Bluecoat.

Anyone who thinks flutes should not get their own clef is a direct spawn of satan.

8va exists. Has for hundreds of years… Composers, arrangers, editors, and engravers, take note!

Piccolos also exist. When you get lots of ledger lines, other woodwinds start muttering about how “that’s why we have flutes”. When flutes get lots of ledger lines? They start muttering about piccolos.

Lots of ledger lines on piccolo is where the real problems start

Is that Metroplex?

A Leblanc clarinet. I experimented with a variety of light sources from flash to candles. Whilst candles create a lovely warm glow if (when) they flicker they can ‘blur’ the crispness of the keywork. This meant that I had to stand very still during the long exposures and not breathe too much, if at all. This is presumably what ‘sacrificing for your art’ means. At least I still have two ears though.
