playing the instruments

rating of saxophones
  • soprano: This is just a clarinet with a head cold
  • alto: too many 15 year olds in my wind ensemble playing careless whisper for me to form an unbiased opinion also it makes my teeth feel weird when i play it
  • tenor: growly boy, nice sound, the neck makes me think of a hunch back
  • baritone: This Sultry Boy mmmmmmm growl big saxy Nice Yes uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
  • bonus. contrabass: receiving impressed looks from non-musicians about playing a large instrument makes me feel slightly threatened by any instrument that is larger than my own thus this saxophone will have to earn my trust but also i think it's not actually real
Dear Evan Hansen Headcanon:

((This is taking place in the AU where Connor doesn’t kill himself and he’s friends with Evan.))

-The Murphy’s try to build their family back up after Connor’s suicide attempt.
-Zoe suggests he joins Jazz Band.
-At first, Connor is against the whole idea.
-It’s Evan who actually gets him to do it.
-While Zoe plays guitar, Connor plays saxophone.
-He’s actually really good at it?? Connor has never played an instrument ever but you’d never know it.
-The siblings bond over a love of music and Evan goes to every concert and claps a little too loudly for his friends.


(A happy ending for the Murphy’s.
I love this musical to pieces so I HAD write about it! I hope you enjoy and I will see you dudes later!)

Sakumahi Kindergarten Headcanons
  • The two meet when little Sakuya protects Mahi from the bullies 
  • In Kindergarten, Mahi is taller than Sakuya, but is super shy. 
  • When it’s time for naps, Mahiru can only sleep if he is next to Sakuya, and the two end up cuddling together whilst sleeping
  • When Mahiru gets bullied, he doesn’t like telling Sakuya, as he knows that his friend can be mean, so he hides somewhere alone until Sakuya eventually finds him. They then hug it out <3
  • Sakuya gets picked up by his older sister, and Mahiru gets picked up by his mum. Due to this, Sakuya’s sister and Mahi’s mum are good friends.
  • Little Mahi’s favourite activity is playing in the sandpit, whilst Sakuya’s is playing with the musical instruments- He wanted to be a musician when he was older
  • Mahi’s most hated activity is origami because it’s not simple at all. 
  • Once, when they were out playing, Mahi tripped up and grazed his knee. He started crying because it hurt, and Sakuya took Mahi home; The two held hands on the way. 
  • On rare occasions, Sakuya would breakdown and run away from home (understandable with his family’s situation). He would always hide in the same place; A forest clearing (HINT: FROM THE ANIME) and Mahi would always find him there and comfort him; Though, Sakuya never told Mahi why he was crying. 
  • Once, Mahi had a nightmare when napping at school, and he shared a futon with Sakuya so that he wouldn’t be scared. 
  • When cleaning, Mahiru gets super into it and does more work than anyone else. Sakuya has caught himself getting distracted at Mahi’s passion multiple times, always resulting in the green-haired toddler blushing. 
  • When Sakuya’s sister and Sakuya were over at Mahiru’s house, they had a little ‘make-over’ session, where Sakuya was introduced to the hair curler™.  When Mahiru first saw Sakuya with the hair curl, he laughed with a slight blush, “Wow, Sakuya! It suits you a lot! I like it!”. Ever since then, Sakuya curls his hair. 

That’s all I’ve got for headcanons rn lmao.

ID #98736

Name: Eleonora
Age: 18
Country: Italy

I’m interested in finding some new pen-friends to talk about different cultures and languages.

Preferences: I’m at my last year of school and I study English, Spanish and German with their literatures and cultures. I love especially English decadent literature such us Oscar Wilde. I also love to sing and play guitar and I’m trying to take part in the next Xfactor season. I’d like to find someone who loves music and plays an instrument because making music is the most important thing to me. I don’t care about your political tendency or your ideas in general because I’m open to discussion and debate. Maybe I’m not the usual adolescent, I feel myself different from that kind of person, I have great expectation of my future and of our future. Write me if you’re interested in me, I’ll be glad to talk to you! P.S I hope my English is not so bad :)

anonymous asked:

What do you do when you wrote the lyrics for a song and heave a melody for it but don't know how to play the instrument it would go best with

garageband! there are good programs out there that are good for that kind of stuff but garageband is the first free one that comes to mind (as long as you have an apple device) OR maybe ask a friend to see if they know anyone who can play what you have in mind. that’s what i did when i was into writing music

11 question tag

Thanks to @heart-attack-harry and @cheshirepuddin for tagging me! This was fun to do and I hope, wish, beg for the terrible 11 questions of mine at the bottom of this post to live on and on and on.

Rules:

1. Always post these rules.
2. Answer the questions given by the person who tagged you.
3. Write 11 questions of your own.
4. Tag 11 people.

@heart-attack-harry questions:

1. What is one 1D song that you think Harry would sound great singing himself?

What A Feeling.

2. What time do you get up in the mornings?

It all depends on when I fell asleep or if I have to be anywhere.

3. If you could do one of the following with Harry, which would you choose: write a song with him, sing a song with him, or play an instrument in his band?

Play an instrument in his band. See, if you play an instrument with him, there’s a chance you’d be singing with him & writing a song with him. Plus, you get to travel places with him.

4. If you could cast Harry in another movie, what kind of role would it be?

Jack Dawson in Titanic. 

5. Are you a gold or silver person?

Both… 

6. What is your go-to lunch?

Yogurt. 

7. Favorite decade of music?

70′s. 90′s. Lot of nice stuff coming out this decade too.

8. Favorite memory with a friend?

It’s a secret but must be the funniest thing I’ve ever done.

9. Name a person, band, movie, song, etc. that you think is overrated.

Oh, fuck. Uhm. Person: Drake. Ed Sheeran. Band: U2.  Movie: Fifty Shades. Song: Lots. That Diamond song by Rihanna for one. 

10. Did you pre-order Harry’s album? If so, what version?

Yes, the bundle. 

11. Most romantic thing someone has done for you?

Heh. NO idea. 

@cheshirepuddin‘s questions:

1. Who’s your role model?

Harry, I think. He’s a good guy.

2. What’s something you want to accomplish in the short term?

Everything? Haha. To accomplish something in the short term is a dream.

3. What would you like to ask Harry?

Hm. What song, unrelated to yours, do you feel was written about you? 

4. If you could travel through time once and then come back, would you prefer to travel to the past or the future? Why?

Future, to a time when I’m not alive anymore. Want to see the state of the world and what stuff people are up to after my time. What’s the new thing? How are they dressed? What are their political views? What’s the issue? What world war are we on? Or what planet are we living on? What season are the Simpsons on? I really want to go to Mars.

5. Where’s your favorite place you’ve been to?

I bet my mother’s womb ashjkfdgø

6. Would you like to get married and have kids someday?

S’not my thing. If it happens it happens, but it’s not a goal of mine, far from it.

7. Do you have a motto you live by?

Be honest, be you, and follow your gut instinct. People have tried to pull receipts on me but it doesn’t work. I’ve always been who I am, standing by my ideas and opinions. 

8. Have you ever been in love? Are you now?

Making love to the music. 

9. Which song reminds you of some time/someone/something very important to you?

I make memories with songs all the time. Here Comes The Sun by The Beatles reminds me of when I was four and we moved into a house for the first time. The Long And Winding Road by the Beatles reminds me of my grandma who was hellbent on the song being written by a guy named Lennon McCartney cos it said Lennon/McCartney on her seven inch, not Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Old people brains.

10. Do you pay attention to fashion trends?

No. Never have.

11. If you could change anything about your life, what would it be?

My mental illness. I want it gone.

What we really need is an adaptation of the original 1740 The Beauty and the Beast

So were you aware that the The Beauty and the Beast story we all know is a heavily abridged and rewritten version of a much longer novella by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve?  And that a lot of the plot holes existing in the current versions exist because the 1756 rewrite cut out the second half of the novella, which consisted entirely of the elaborate backstory that explains all the weird shit that happened before?  And that the elaborate backstory is presented in a way that’s kind of boring because the novel had only just been invented in 1740 and no one knew how they worked yet, but contains a bazillion awesome ideas that beg for a modern retelling?  And that you are probably not aware that the modern world needs this story like air but the modern world absolutely needs this story like air?  Allow me to explain:

The totally awesome elaborate backstory that explains Beauty and the Beast

  • Once upon a time there was a king, a queen, and their only son
  • But while the prince was still in his infancy, in a neat reversal of how these fairy tales usually go, the king tragically died, leaving his wife to act as Regent until their son reaches maturity
  • Unfortunately, the rulers of all the lands surrounding them go, “Hmm, the kingdom is ruled by a woman now, it must be weak, time for an invasion!”
  • And the Queen goes, “Well, if I let some general fight all these battles for me, he’ll totally amass enough fame and power to make a bid for the throne; if I want to protect my son’s crown, I have no choice but to take up arms and lead the troops myself!
  • (Btw, I want to stress that this woman is not Eowyn or Boudica and nothing in the way her story is presented suggests that she had any interest martial exploits before or in any way came to enjoy them during these battles.  This is a perfectly ordinary court lady who would much rather be embroidering altar covers for the royal chapel and playing with her child until necessity made her go, “Oh no, this sucks, I guess I have to become a Warrior Queen now” and she just happened to kick ass at it anyway.)
  • And the Queen totally kicked ass, but the whole “twice as good for half the credit” thing meant that no matter how many battles she won, potential enemies refused to take her and her army seriously until she had defeated them so no sooner would she fend off one invasion than another one would pop up on a different border.
  • So she spent the majority of her young son’s life away from the castle leading armies, but it was OK because she left him in the care of her two best friends, who just happen to be fairies!  This was an awesome idea because a) fairies have magic, and therefore are like the best people to protect the prince from any threats and b) fairies consider themselves to be so above humanity that the lowest fairy outranks the highest mortal, so they’d have no interest in taking a human throne.  Good thing they were both good fairies instead of one good and one evil one!
  • (Spoiler:  they were not both good fairies.)
  • So the two fairies basically take turns raising the prince until he’s old enough to rule.  And on the eve of his twenty-first birthday, the evil older one comes into the prince’s bedroom.
  • “So listen, kid.  You’re about to become king, your mother’s on her way home from the war to see you crowned, and I have a third piece of good news for you!  You see, I’ve actually been spending so much time here lately because Fairyland’s become a bit too hot to hold me for reasons totally not related to me being secretly evil.  And if I have to hang in the human world, I might as well reside in the upper echelons of it, so even though as a powerful fairy I completely eclipse your puny human status in a staggeringly unimaginable way, since you’re about to be king and since my premonition that I should stick this whole guardianship thing out because you would be hot one day has totally proved accurate (go me), I will graciously lower myself to allowing you to marry me.  Please feel free to grovel at my feet in gratitude.  (Btw, we can totally start the wedding night now, we’ll tell your mother about it when she arrives tomorrow.)”

Chanyeol + Instruments ♬     ♪  (requested by @queenhyo)

What wakes me up in the morning:

Is seeing Jimin beat his pre-debut demons and insecurities and grow to become one of Korea’s most respected stage performers that many young idols even look up to.

Is seeing Namjoon go from not loving himself to loving all his faults and transcending that love through all genders, race, colour and language.

Is seeing Jungkook go from shy, reserved and quiet to making friends, learning English to speak with I-fans and getting to perform with his idols.

Is seeing Yoongi fight his battles with mental health issues and using his struggles to express some of the most inspiring and influential songs in kpop history.

Is seeing Seokjin underestimate us all by singing, dancing, playing instruments, going to events and awards shows all while graduating university, proving he is more than just looks but a role model

Is seeing Taehyung be ridiculed, hated and bashed for being different to being the reason of joy, happiness and laughter for all those who have experienced losses in their life

Is seeing Hoseok who despite being bashed for his looks and having low-self confidence continually looks to make others happy, smile and laugh. Calling himself Hope because he wants be to the light in everyone’s life.

i want to be in a band so bad it’s actually killing me. like just the thought of being in a van with my best friends, traveling across the country and making music that has the potential to inspire people to do the same thing could actually send me to the grave

“She’s as smart as I am. She plays the violin, loves the adagio movement of Nielsen’s fifth, just like I do.”

I like to think that Oriana’s love of music led her to find a special role in helping the galaxy rebuild after the Reaper war. (Titles inspired by The Planets, by Holst.)
