Fun Story: My director kept telling me and my tenor sax buddy to play softer. No matter what we did, it wasn’t soft enough for him. So getting frustrated, I told my buddy “Dont play this time. Just fake it” 
Our Band Director then informed us we sounded perfect. 

To my readers: “p” means quiet, “pp” means really quiet. I’ve never seen “pppp” before haha.
On the contrast, “f” means loud, and “ffff” probably means so loud you go unconscious.

I had ffff in a piece once and my conductor told me to play as loudly as physically possible without falling off my chair…

Me and my trombone buddies had “ffff” and he sat next to me and played so hard that he fell out of his chair.
The lengths we go for music.

Okay yeah so I play the bass clarinet and the amount of air you have to move and the stiffness of the reed means it only has two settings and that is loud and louder, with an optional LOUDEST that includes a 50% probability of HORRIBLE CROAKING NOISE which is the bass equivalent of the ubiquitous clarinet shriek.

One day, when I was in concert band in high school, we got a new piece handed out for the first time, and there was a strange little commotion back in the tuba section — whispering, and pointing at something in the music, and swatting at each other’s hands all shhh don’t call attention to it. And although they did attract the attention of basically everyone else in the band, they managed to avoid being noticed by the band director, who gave us a few minutes to look over our parts and then said, “All right, let’s run through it up to section A.”
And here we are, cheerfully playing along, sounding reasonably competent — but everyone, when they have the attention to spare, is keeping an eye on the tuba players. They don’t come in for the first eight measures or so, and then when they do come in, what we see is:
[stifled giggling]
[reeeeeeally deep breath]
[COLOSSAL FOGHORN NOISE]
The entire band stops dead, in the cacophonous kind of way that a band stops when it hasn’t actually been cued to stop. The band director doesn’t even say anything, just looks straight back at the tubas and makes a helpless sort of why gesture.
In unison, the tuba players defend themselves: “THERE WERE FOUR F’S.”
FFFF is not really a rational dynamic marking for any instrument, but for the love of all that is holy why would you put it in a tuba part.

This is the best band post 
Everyone else go home

Oh man, so I play trombone, and we got this piece called Florentiner Marsch by Julius Fucik, and we saw this

I’ve played Florentiner March. I had to sit next to the piccolo player.

Dude I can’t even walk in a strait line

Whoa

One of my favourite things is when two or more people are in motion side-by-side and they use different maneuvers to achieve the same goal.

is this the training room from lara crofts mansion

Wow!!!

  • Me when I was 12: Wow, I think my crush is really cute I hope they like me back.
  • Me now: Yes my crush is cute, but do they share the same political views as me?

War came into my homeland

Whole world calls Donbass people “terrorists” just because we don’t want to go in EС and because we don’t want to live in absolute poverty and without any job thanks to IMF “anticrisis” programs. We just want peace and to have basic human rights, such as right to speak and to learn on our native russian language and to have right to live.

But Ukraine always saw us as a slaves who don’t deserve anything. Language? Shut up and work. Ukrainian is the only language you will use. History? Sole heroes in this country were fascists from Western Ukraine, shut up and praise bloody murderers. You have time to ask questions? Not enough work for you, go and die while working in mines and factories.

Donbass people are kindhearted and strongwilled, we are used to hard work for our families and our country. But when your country tells you that you have no rights, that you can’t be even called a human just because you don’t agree with main politicians, that your death is good occasion to laugh on - you stop believe that this country is yours. When the country you lived in began to murder people in your homeland using army, USA and Europe mercenaries and even air forses - it is not your country anymore. And we proven it on referendum on May 11th - 89.7% of people voted “yes” to became independent republic. Media usually says that it was false results and there were no people at all and whole lot of other lies - but I live there, I’m talking with people and I was on a referendum. People here now hate they former country and don’t want to have with it anything in common.

I live in Donetsk Republic and I don’t care that USA or Europe don’t like us and says that we are Ukraine. We are not. Ukraine started war against innocent people and it will pay for it sooner or later.

I don’t really know if I will be alive this evening or not, because Ukrainian army fighters are throwing bombs in our airport now and in my city started firefight between Ukrainian army&radical Ukrainian troops and our Republic army. I pray for my people and I pray for peace.

  • Watching romance film: *sarcastic* Ugh, they're so in love. It's so tragic.
  • Reading fanfiction with OTP: *sobbing* omg, they're so in love. It's so tragic.
