First Year (end)

When we started finally playing music, I realized that the baritone is a remarkably easy instrument. I was first chair all throughout the year, and I got a first division on my solo and my ensemble. (which isn’t hard for beginner band) Our band trip for beginner band is always Splashway. I was offered to go to Schlitterbahn with the advanced band, but I denied mainly because I didn’t really know anybody from that band. When school ended, my dad moved into my town. *note my parents are separated and I’ve lived with my mom and stepdad most my life. So I decided to move in with him for a new experience. Now, I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t the best, but I wasn’t going to give up so fast.

First Year (continued)

On the first day of band class, we auditioned for percussion and learned what all the woodwind instruments were and got to play the mouthpieces. We did the same thing the next day with the brass and I was starting to get the idea of what I wanted to play. Since I didn’t make percussion, I wanted to play the saxophone. I thought it was a really cool instrument, but it seemed too hard. So My next plan was to play trumpet. So when I went to go to the meeting after school to choose my instrument, I discovered my band director already chose one for me. The baritone. What?! I didn’t even know what that is! But before I could change my instrument, my mom butted in and said, “Oh! Baritone! I played that when I was in band! I’m sure he’ll do great!” *note, she was only in band for 1 year until she quit because she hated it. So there it is, I was forever stuck on baritone. But I look back now and see how lucky I was to be put on such a great instrument!

First Year

Well, in my school, our band starts in 6th grade. But I did art in 6th grade, so I didn’t start band until I was in 7th grade. I only joined band because I heard we get to go to Disney World when I’m a freshman, so I figured I might as well join early so I will actually know what I’m doing by the time I get there. I know, stupid reason to join band, right? But I was young and naive. And I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
