Mico has poured himself into his French Horn. Plays in an youth orchestra with top players from 5 counties. Has played all summer. He was disappointed he didn't make Wind Symphony at the high school, but that was based on the end of last year. Two weeks into the year a senior was removed from Wind and Mico was moved up. Most of his friends were very supportive. Some people he doesn't know made a fit about it because sophomores don't make or belong in Wind Symphony. A few he considered friends who were just jealous.

Today was chair placement performances. He beat out the juniors and seniors for first chair Wind Symphony.

Get u sum my boy.

Well done Mico!

I was a lazy clarinet player and was always whatever the "last" chair was.  Once I got to a certain point, my fingering just couldn't keep up (that sounds bad, but musicians should know what I mean).  Also... I hated our teacher in high school.  He was a real douchenozzle... even the kids that were really good didn't like him.

Yes, the kids that got pissed that he made Wind Symphony as a sophomore. Him making first chair should end all the chit chat that there are juniors and seniors that should have been promoted to Wind before him.

  As a former french horn first chair in high school, I will confirm that little Mico's embouchure will serve him well.    :cheers:

If they’re that serious about it they could always change districts. Nothing worse than moping French horn players. It’s not gonna suit their playing.

Curious the Sr that was demoted what chair did he / she end up on the lower band? If 1st chair I could see that player being frustrated not with Mico but with the director. if they ended up middle of the pack the right person was demoted

The senior that got demoted had transitioned over from saxophone to french horn and mellophone the previous year. I don't think he played either mellophone or horn over the summer. He struggled with the mellophone in marching band. The instrument is a trumpet fingering. Mico was first chair trumpet, he kills it on mellophone. Mico has had the entire marching band program memorized before school started. The senior was slowing down the Wind Symphony, he just didn't find his way with the instrument. He is a really good sax player. I think he is going back to that instrument.

I’m going to see a band in a few minutes where the bass parts are all played with a sousaphone run through effects pedals.
John Medeski’s Mad Skillet. Pretty funky New Orleans jazz.

That's awesome! He really must have some big talent if he jumped all the juniors and seniors.

 

I started on french horn and switched to trumpet. I was good at both, but all my friends were trumpet players. Had I stayed with french horn I probably would have got laid a lot more in high school since there were about 10 girls in the french horn section and 1 guy, and I didn't learn until college that before I switched to trumpet some of those girls had crushes on me.

 

You better keep that kid safe, it seems he's got all the good DNA.
