Band-Geek

Yes, I was a Band-Geek.

Played Alto Sax, Clari Net, Baritone Sax, flute, Bass Oon, a little Tenor Sax.

One benefit to this was that in senior year of High School I skipped all my classes every Friday and spent the day bouncing from music group to group - concert band, stage band, orchestra, sax ensemble, clarinet ensemble, flute ensemble....

Downsides:

  • forced to be in the Marching Band and go to football games (Spectator Sports).

  • opportunities for group music are limited for adults

  • playing music that other people write isn't much of an art
