This kid: “I arranged this cool song for a full concert band”

Me: “Wow you’re pretty talented”

This kid: “also the entire concert band is me”

HE’S ACTUALLY GOOD AT EVERY INSTRUMENT, LIKE HE’S NOT JUST HALF-ASSING EVERY INSTRUMENT, HE REALLY KNOWS ALL OF THEM

  • <p> <b>every talented musician ever:</b> warm up with low, long tones!<p/><b>me:</b> *stumbles through a 2 octave scale in 5 seconds, sneezes, hits head on a brick wall somewhere"<p/></p>
my favorite instrument stereotypes
  • tuba: either too tall or too small, pop culture nerds, enjoy old memes
  • trombone: at once amazingly competent and incompetent. no one else can play their trombone because it is broken in ways only they understand
  • euphonium: the teenaged equivalent of a bitter old man who actually has a heart of gold
  • trumpet: egotistical fucks who care a lot about playing louder than the flutes
  • french horn: the only labrosone above the sin of the brass section. everyone treats them like woodwinds because they essentially are
  • flutes: really want to be first chair, insecure about their musicianship, weep a lot
  • clarinet: like the flutes but better at emotional suppression, wants to make everyone proud
  • saxophone: awesome jazz
  • oboe: the only one who doesn't think their instrument sounds like a duck, nerds
  • bassoon: rich, pretentious, correct other people's grammar
  • percussion: first i bang the drum then i bang your mom, also anger issues probably
