Dear kids that are starting band for the first time.
Instruments don’t have gender. If you are a boy and you want to play flute. Do it. If you are a girl and you want to play tuba. Do it. No one can tell you that since you are a boy you have to play saxophone, trumpet or another instrument like that. Or since you are a girl you have to play flute, clarinet or some instrument like that. Play whatever you want to. No one can tell you other wise.
You know those days where your tone is just… inexplicably good? Like you sit down and start running through some scales or something and the sound is just so full and warm and it doesn’t feel like your instrument is fighting you and you feel so in touch with the world… I live for those days
