I pronounce it like “shackle”

But then that could just be the southern accent in me lol.  

Hello fellow Band people! It did not occur to me until today that I should reach out to the tumblr band community for support. I was wondering if you could share this on your blog. It is a link to a fundraiser that I am helping to run with my college marching band.https://www.launch.umd.edu/project/533472480920657409de1296 
Thanks to anyone who can offer any support from sharing the link with friends to donating any amount.

WORLD PREMIERE PERFORMANCE: Frames by Paolo Griffin

From my graduating recital 3/23/14

Inflatable Concert Hall

The world’s first inflatable concert hall in the disaster-hit northeastern coast town of Matsushima in Miyagi prefecture, Japan. British sculptor Anish Kapoor and Japanese architect Arata Isozaki created the unusual Ark Nova, a balloon made of a coated polyester material, which has been erected at a park in Matsushima for the concert hall. The first event will run from September 27 through October 14, including performances by the Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra and traditional Japanese kabuki theatre.

Extreme respect for those auditioning for DCI, ESPECIALLY those who had to learn a different instrument just to audition. Conquer and dominate all in your future auditions. I believe in you all! (:

We’ve all wondered what happens if you don’t take away your face from your instrument fast enough when you gotta sneeze.  Now we know…it’s a work of art.

oh hey look what just came up on my news feed.

NO HOLD UP YOU NEED TO STOP RIGHT THERE.
Usually I’ll post stuff like this down in the tags, but this is extremely important.
People who major in music do it because they love what they do. They know it is not all that well paying, and it can lead to a rough life. The decision they make is to carry on doing something they love, something that will (hopefully) bring them happiness. It is many hours of practicing, dedication, and anxiety over auditions, shows, etc.
Music majors don’t get paid all that much, especially if they’re are strictly performing. They have to dedicate themselves to some other job in order to pay bills, because depending on the area you live in or how many orchestras/ bands you perform in you might not be making all that much. However, people still chose to pursue something they love in order to achieve happiness.
Additionally, let’s pretend that music major’s didn’t exist for a second. Films would have practically no soundtrack. The people who work on movies coordinating the music are music majors. You want to go to a musical? Guess what there is no music. MUSIC MAJORS ARE NOT JUST PLAYING INSTRUMENTS!!! Get your head out of your ass and stop bashing other people’s passions and major.
