I am a former, PROUD, 'band geek'; four years flute, 2 years w/my true love - tenor sax. I miss it - the only thing I play these days is the radio!

We had a great director for the first 4yrs I was in Band; he pushed us hard, but it really paid off. We mastered pieces that were pretty advanced for our ages (Sleigh Ride in middle school, JP Souza marches, The Barber of Seville in high school, etc.) and won quite a few All State competitions. Anyway, it was a wonderful outlet for my love of music and I miss playing dearly. I wish I had time to take up piano - it's so versatile!

Wow... I sound like I'm STILL a band geek!!!

Not a band geek, but a full-fledged music department insider.

4 years of piano classes
3 years of guitar classes (not really a guitar class though, more just like our local music shop owner plays the blues with us and we jam all day)
1 year music theory/history

Editor-in-Chief of the 2006 Ebb Tides school yearbook (music dept. runs this too)

Tri-M National Music Honor Society member for 2 years.


Yeah, so I'm in it pretty deep.

Although I die before joining the band.



kidding.

Yes! I am no longer alone!

I've been playing alto sax for about 5 years (first chair!), piano for about 2, and I just picked up bari sax, clarinet and guitar this year. I can also play marimba.

My middle school director was amazing. I was sad that he retired after my 8th grade year.

not a band geek but half my friends are in the band cult (and it's nothing short of a cult either )

anyway, there's no shame

I was in the special band at school, meaning we were supposed to be the best in our years at our instruments. I was the only tenor horn player .

Hmm...I actually might have. I don't think I've competed with them, but I live in Illinois so the name rings a bell.
