Thinking about what instrument to play for band next year? Here is a sampling of the Woodwind instruments!
Too bad this video doesn't show the size and how to hold them, but I bet you could do a little searching around on the 'net and find information.
If you are excited about the instrument you play (or plan to play), put a comment here about why you chose your instrument, or why you enjoy playing. It may help someone else make a choice.
To all serious and non serious music students:
Would you like to keep your instrument skills up during the summer? Do you enjoy working on pieces and performing for others? Do you need confidence on your instrument? Would you like to review basic fundamentals on your instrument so you can start strong in the fall? Do you want to explore a new instrument or get a head start for beginning band?
