  4. Drum majors get so into the music they want to jump on a large downbeat. But within that split second right before, they realize they are on a rickety platform so it ends up looking like an awkward knee bend. Fierce I tell you.

  5. In Austraila the toilets flush the other way, the French Horns are in the front, the Percussion are model students, and the Trumpets have self-esteem issues. Just what I heard ;)

  11. I have climbed the most dangerous peaks. I have sailed oceans in storms that have only existed in legends. I have traveled to the very depths of hell and back but I will never, NEVER again bare the rage-filled gaze of the percussionist watching me pick up a timpani improperly. This I swear.
