    At my school, the band geeks are kind of cool.

    We are not considered socially awkward, and virtually nobody bullies us. I play oboe in concert band, saxophone in jazz band, and clarinet and piano on the side. This year I was in show band and the pit band, so I was in every band the school had to offer.

    Confessions Of A Band Geek

    Music has always been my life. When I discovered band, it was amazing. I play any instrument I can get my hand on. I play guitar and trumpet for band, but when the director leaves I sneak in and play all the extra instruments. I'm not the best, but I adore it.

    I was in band from grade 6 to grade 12.

    I played the Bb Clarinet. Being in band opened my eyes to the depth and complexity of music and the raw emotion even a single note can have. I loved every second of it. It was challenging sometimes, but it was never dull. It's an incredible feeling to be a component of a larger...

        It's easy to see that I'm a band geek. Band seems to just gravitate towards me. The background on my desktop is of my band, I have a section of my wall dedicated to my band, I own more band t-shirts than underwear, I revolve my social life around band practice...

    Music Makes Me Happy

    For a kid who doesn't do sports and is only a little over the average in academics, band is perhaps the greatest thing I have ever done. For once I feel like I'm doing something that I know I'm good at and that I won't get kicked out because I can't do something. The band program...
