So, band camp just got cancelled in the middle of camp. Someone in my band apparently contracted COVID-19, so looks like no season this year. I don't have anything to take up for my seventh and fourth period if we don't get to have band, I don't know what to do.
I know a lot of you guys have also had camp/season cancelled, and I'm very sorry about that. All us marchers are here for everyone, stranger or no. Look, if anyone wants to talk about anything, anything at all, message me, tell me you're from said subreddit, and we can talk.
Also, have a joke to cheer you up if you are sad:
How does a marching band member walk?
I personally think that Sound Euphonium is one of the more underrated Kyoani anime. It could be just me, but compared to other Kyoani anime like a silent voice, clannad, k-on, violet evergarden, hyouka, nichijou etc, I don’t see Sound Euphonium being talked about as much. Now we all know that pretty much anything Kyoani makes is superb in terms of the quality, and sound euphonium doesn’t disappoint. I’m mainly gonna be talking about the first 2 seasons only, I will touch a little on the 3rd movie but mainly focusing on the anime series.
First off the story. Sound Euphonium follows the journey of Kitauji high schools concert band. At first they’re a mediocre band but the journey follows their development as a band as well the development of individual characters. Since it’s a club activity, it kinda follows your typical sports anime structure where first years join the club and the club aim for nationals but bump into trouble along the way. The story is pretty simple and concert band m... keep reading on reddit ➡
I played baritone and tuba in highschool and I've been wanting to get back into playing again so I've been looking into buying a euphonium. The compensating models are favored for their better intonation obviously but I'm not a fan of having the fourth valve just hanging off the side to be operated my my left hand. Does anyone know of any four valve compensating horns without the separate fourth valve? Thanks in advance!
Hi guys! I'm a trumpet player and I've just received an euphonium that hasn't been touched for a lot of time and it was owned by a child. I was planning to wash the euphonium in the tub with dish soap in order to remove outside fingerprints and general dirt but I've read this is not a "best practice".
What do you suggest for cleaning an euphonium at home without any negative consequence?
(TL/DR at the end)
Okay, so a few things here..
How do you clean your instrument...? I don't want to ruin it, and I have no experience in cleaning my euph at all, but Theodore (yes, Theodore...) is filthy.
Now, this one's not related to marching band, but more jazz band. I'm fucking awful at improvisation... How do I improve? I don't have much to practice with, and if my first year/last year in jazz band showed me anything, imma be fucked.

My little sister is an amazing musician, scholarship and all that. She's getting married and I want to buy her a nice instrument. I coaxed her into telling me her favorite instrument to play is the euphonium. I just have no idea what to get. The hirsbrunner according to Google it's the best. I am willing to spend several he's, any input would be appyas I want to get something special not just expensive

Good evening everyone!
I have been reflecting on how I can improve upon my sound, and I remembered that listening to great euphonium performers is a great start to focus on what tone I want to produce. I have been listening to the same three or four albums over and over again, do you know of any new or great euphonium albums everyone here should listen to?
Is there any new information about the already announced and last season for hibike? Thanks in advance
I just watched Season 1,2 ,and the finale movie in 1 day. cause it was that entertaining.. man I could go on about how good the series, but after staying up 12 hours i'm too tired too type pages. maybe because i'm a sucker for slice of life, romance, school genre animes.
However everything about the anime just happen to work from the animation, artwork, music selection, and of course the story where you get a POV of a freshman's experiencing joining band. the main and supporting characters were interesting too.
I found myself often crying then laughing back too crying again I even wanted to ship the 2 female MC's together LOL. There were also times seeing the school performances where I find myself being nervous for the characters when they perform if they were too mess up. regardless of all that I always just wanting too see what happens next.
just wanted to share with Reddit that I had a fun time watching this series and recommend this series too anyone who enjoy's slice o... keep reading on reddit ➡
Title says it all, but there is a bonus question. Do most competition bands have one or two baritone parts?
Hello, I'm 17 and in colorado springs right now and I struggle to find any opportunities for me as a mucisian. I'm not really looking to pursue a major in it because it's an unstable career field and especially for my future plans is very unreliable. However, I would still like to max out my own abilities here.
Can anyone help me out?
I've been checking around music stores in my area and can't seem to find any euphs that I'm particularly keen to purchase. Wondering if any members of the sub are offering anything that might be of interest!
Edit: located in the Pacific Northwest but okay with paying for shipping within the US, preferably below $1000 for the shipping+euph.
Looking to start playing again but don't know where to start looking for used euphoniums for sale. Thanks for any help
I was wondering what the Russian word for euphonium is. I looked it up and found it was either благозвучная речь or эуфониум. If you do not know what a euphonium is, it is a brass instrument that is like a tuba but pitched one octave higher.
