ostimusic:

instrumentastrology:

Those mixed feelings you get when your barely play at all in a piece

New rule: You aren’t allowed to whine about a minimal part if you aren’t good enough to be assigned the first chair part.

I know that the commenter is John Mackey, but I’m really uncomfortable with this sentiment.  First of all the player is probably the Bass trombone player, which is a completely different chair that usually have separate auditions. Also, a lower chair doesn’t mean you are worse or better than anyone else. It just means that you are playing that part. Second can be harder that first and requires different skills.  First is not better than second. And people need to remember that.

the-fifth-symphony:

I don’t remember when I found this .gif, or who made it (if you know, tell me so I can credit them), but it’s just the best thing.
Mostly in how the horn player is not only bracing his ear from the sound, but how the shock of the hammer makes his music bounce.  

Look at the bass clarinet player his face
