True story

When my sister joined band in eighth grade, she was placed on clarinet. Her friend, however, had the choice between clarinet and trumpet. My sister, not wanting to be alone, spent an hour trying to talk her friend into playing clarinet, but couldn’t think of anything good to say about her instrument, so she tried to bad talk trumpet, but couldn’t think of anything bad to say about it, so in a moment of desperation said something along the lines of “You can’t choose trumpet because it only has three buttons!”

The friend chose clarinet

How the Section Leader Send Band Camp Reminders
  • flutes:you receive a text in the group message: "in case you didn't get my 7 emails, 20 other texts, and 3 letters, the first day of band camp is tomorrow! be there twenty minutes early so we can have a mini sectional! practice tonight! :) :) :)"
  • clarinets:the section leader's snapchat story is a picture of squidward emblazoned with the date and time of band camp. you feel as if you are being mocked.
  • saxophones:a group text that reminds you all to bring your two dollars for pizza. you ignore it and decide to bring an expired coupon instead and then act confused when questioned.
  • trumpets:a text that reads "the rarest pepe will be in the band room tomorrow at 8. do not miss this opportunity."
  • mellos:none of you send a reminder because you all think someone else is the section leader. actually, the director accidentally chose one of the trumpets as your section leader. a trumpet who graduated.
  • trombones:wait, WHAT started this morning??
  • tubas/euphs:you haven't heard from your section leader in two weeks since they called you at two am and whispered "macaroni" into the phone for no apparent reason.
  • drumline:section leader sneaks into your house and leaves a broken drumhead under your pillow. written on it in sharpie is the threatening message "bring your own water tomorrow u freeloading fuck".
  • pit:do you even have a section leader? are YOU the section leader? shit!
  • guard:you don't need a reminder! who do they think you are, the trombones??
the instruments group chats be like
  • Flutes/Piccolo:"hey guys i hope everyone is having an amazing summer! Everyone stay happy and practice lots! x :) "
  • Clarinets:normal conversations, plus the one kid that spams that chat endlessly with random unrelated photos
  • Saxophones:just inside jokes left and right plus the occasional information about band
  • Bass Clarinets:everyone has each other muted on the chat
  • Double Reeds:*crashes everyone else's group chats*
  • Trumpets:all caps rages about which pepe frog face is best
  • Trombones:unholy offspring of memes
  • French Horns:bad music puns and pickup lines
  • Tubas:theres one kid thats spamming the chat with DCI and the others are discussing which places to eat at for after marching rehearsal...in the middle of concert season
  • Euphonium:changing the group name and picture every 5 minutes
  • Drumline and Pit:drumline cracking fart jokes and sending memes with each other and the pit kids just stare at them in confusion and being somewhat scared
  • Guard:trading gossip about the directors and how to spin a rifle without killing anyone
Naming instruments

I’ve always named my instruments, ever since I was little and for ages I just assumed that everyone else did too. That was until I asked my friend what he’d named his new clarinet and he looked at me like I was crazy and went “um, nothing????”

So do any of you name your instruments? I’d love to know what they’re called!

Ok so, if you look at the Clarinet&bass clarinet section picture in hibike, the ones all the way too the left look suspiciously alike to the members of the occult club in K-ON. Just sayin' =P

Lol! You mean these girls, right?

And these two, of course.

I have to say that you make a very good point. Bespectacled clarinet girl looks a lot like the occult club member on the right (I mean their bangs are even parted the same way omg) and it looks like the clarinet girl with bangs has almost the same hair color as the occult club member on the left! Also, that height difference is way identical. I looove KyoAni crossovers especially when it seems like they could totally fit (Back when Hibike was first being announced as KyoAni’s new project, I remember thinking that it sounded a lot like the Jazz Club from K-On!)

Headcanon: The two clarinet girls are also part-time occult club members and kinda the weirdos of the clarinet section, like they constantly talk about UFOs and stuff between practice :)
