    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.

    The Perks of Being a Band Geek

        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...

    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 absolutely love marching band.

    I'm also in orchestra and concert band, but marching band is by far my favorite. I'm in the clarinet section and they are all so fun to be around. We're definitely the weirdest section of the band, and no other section really understands what we're doing most of the time, but...

    Marching band was amazing.  I joined my freshman year, and I had a really hard time at first, especially at band camp.  All the veterans knew exactly what they were doing, and I was completely lost.  I could never get to my dot in time, I couldn't make the right...

    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...
