I don't know if at your school the trumpets say really bad stuff about horns. Or others to. But I am a horn player and Trumpet player to. So I see both sides. Horn players don't suck at there insterment we all have are diffrent playing spots. It just gets really bad sounding because yeah ? And what do you think about your french horn players? and Trumpet players? Or do you have a good sounding one?





P.S. French horns rock my socks :D

I think that at every school, and in every section those feelings of contempt for other sections is apparent. I am a Euphonium player, and I think that the Trombones kind of stink sometimes. I make fun of the Trumpets for screaming, or playing high. I also make fun of the French Horns, for being stuck up and out of tune sometimes. However, I understand that they do the same to me. I know they do. Most of my friends are in different sections. My family is in the Euphoniums, but I make fun of my friends. I also understand, as do they, that in order for a band to function, all parts have to there. So, we do not make fun of the person, just the section as a whole, and even then it is that section as an all around section through out the world. Your lucky, you can play both ends of it. Do not do it to cruelty though. If it is stupid things, like wow those french horns are stuck up, or man those drummers are roudy. So in a way, it is more about stereotypes than anything. If it Personal things that they are bashing, then you might want to take it to the director, but if it is stupid stereotypical things, then I wouldn't worry about it. I hope that this helps a little.

"if you do that again, i'll make you SWITCH TO THE FLUTE SECTION!!!"

*dum dum dummmmmmm* haha...everybody bashes the flutes the most.

kinda sad, i know, but for some reason that is the only section that can't march... :P however, i think they are kicking loads of butt this year, cuz they have a pretty difficult move in the show, and they've been doing real well. i sure gained a lot of respect for them this year, especially at band camp.

the clarinets and alto saxes are kind of unnoticeable...haha...they just do what they're told.

the rest of the saxes are straight up sexy. (or saxy..haha)

and, of course, all brass kicks ass. har har. and i think we have the best looking section in the band :P

even though we make fun of each other, we do it all in good humour. friendly competition, i suppose. :-D

i'm a french horn and trumpet player too. i switched to FHorn last year and i'm kinda bad so i make fun of myself. my freshmen year the trumpets did bash the french horns a little bit. first they would take the back music stands they use to reflect the sound because they are lazy and then the next day they would stop people from taking what they think is an unused stand and make a big deal about how it reflects the crappy sound away from them.

i like playing the french horn alot but it's really hard. if ur french horn player isnt very good give em a break! it' takes alot of work

lol well that kinda depends on school
i dunno usually iz more of a joke and stuff rather than making fun of the other instruments
i think iz just a pride thing in playing/mastering the specific instrument your playing so that if your section becomes really good, then you feel let down sometimes by other sections if they mess up or dont reach the expectations
personally i hav nothing against other instruments but i take pride in my trumpets this year cuz we b rocking :D

At our school its more like woodwinds against Brass. All brass sticks together were just one big brass family.

yeh same with us its mostly all brass vs. woodwinds but we get bashed on becuase our lead baritone player is a marcher for pacific crest and is used to pretty good instrumental trumpet players were not bad but its hard to keep the freshman on task they dont have lots of talent but try hard!! yeh soo im thinking you can live without a sax,clarient or flute section but cant live without a brass section

you know how lucas is john, always changing topics, lol jk. I dont know our trumpet players dont really have problems with french horn players. Ironically in our field show, we have a french horn (well, mellophone) and trumpet duet, and they are both friends.

I've been playing trumpet for like 4 years now and this summer I switched to french horn and I really suck at it currently, but it just takes practice I guess. But anyways, in our band it's also mainly woodwinds vs brass. But the french horn section leader (theres only two of us =P I'm the freshman french horn section leader... OF MYSELF!!!) and the trumpet section leader always argue over really dumb stuff and my section leader always makes fun of the trumpet leader because his idea of composing is moving his hand up and down at a given tempo. We get really bored sometimes, like at sectionals we sat down and thought up a list of oodles of reasons brass is better than woodwind (every ten minutes of playimng we'd take a 20 minute break=P) But ok I'll stop rambling on and on now.
