No, I'm actually planning to go into Bioengineering. I like playing the trumpet though, and I'm definitely going to hang onto mine as something to do to relieve stress. What's the orchestra like?

Bioengineering eh? I'm gonna sound like I'm freaking autistic but..... playing in the orchestra is absolutely astounding. To me, there is no better experience, especially when you're in the middle of a beautiful concerto and everything drops down to pianississimo while the double bass is plucking away to a soft and steady beat. Then the music begins to rise to fortississimo and the orchestra is in unison, all instruments sound as if it is one, belting out an eargasm of music bliss.

No, just my older sister. She teaches music here in Maine. My other sister is training to be a PA, my dad is a project manager, and my mum is a microbiology major.

Hey, smart family! I asked because all of my siblings play in the orchestra. What about you? Are you going into a music profession like your sister?

Our school didn't have an orchestra, we had to choose between percussion (which meant playing bells at first, so that was off the table), saxophone, clarinet, trombone, flute, and trumpet. My sister played the saxophone and I didn't want to copy her, clarinet seemed boring, trombone was too low, and flute was not solid enough. Trumpet seemed fun though, and relatively easy, so I went with that. Not nearly as easy as I imagined to play well, but it was a fun instrument so I've stuck with it.

I've actually always wanted to learn how to play violin. Trumpet can play a range of stuff, but violin covers a lot of very good classical music which I have always wanted to try playing.
#79 - thisshitisgreat (03/29/2015) [-]
When I was a kid, my school had both high school band and orchestra students come in and play for us. At the end, we could pick which one we liked the most. I really liked the band and how energetic it was, but I also loved the sweet classical melodies that came from the orchestra. I ended up picking the violin because I had fallen in love with the way it sounded. I would have gone for both but it was either one or the other. How did you come across yours?

Man, you don't even know until you've tried a professional trumpet vs. a student's trumpet.

A $350 trumpet is light, hard to play on, and is flat and sharp whenever you go down or up respectively. Then go buy yourself a $2500 professional trumpet from king or Bach or something. Fucking beautiful. It has weight, but it's not too heavy. When I was a student I could barely hit a G over the staff, when I tried playing a professional trumpet I hit a D over high C right off the bat, and held it at a decent tone. For a trumpet player that kind of jump usually takes months if not years of work, and it was done just by switching qualities of instrument.

I can't even begin to imagine the difference in quality when it comes to brass instruments, I always admired the band and their abilities. I wish I would have taken the time to learn one of their instruments.
