So I've noticed a lot of people talking about their band classes and I was wondering how many people are in band and orchestra and what they play. I'm in orchestra and play violin.

EDIT: I screwed up the poll. the options were
Band
Orchestra
Theory Class
Other

I asked my son he said nothing but he just asked me he wants a psyachatrist (spelling?) Because he heard voices calling out his name. What a freak.

Why it music theory class like I thought about taking it next year but I don't know if I'll actually be able to understand anything in it. I only play guitar and I know scales and a few modes. I know the notes on a guitar too.

It's starts off very simple, you already know more by knowing scales and modes, however you will probably have to sight-sing. Which may be new to you.

Don't worry about it though, it's new to pretty much everyone.

I hope they don't grade/judge me on singing cause I have the ugliest most horrible voice and accent ever.

I'm in band and I play the flute. I was considering playing in jazz band last year on bass but I missed the meetings and they're not offering it this year. Oh well.

Yes, it's not that hard and you don't need to worry about being a good singer. We sing Solfege so it's like Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti-Do to sing the major scale. Pretty easy and helps you build a better ear.

You don't have to sound good, you just have to be in tune. Basically what we do is we're given a 4 bar melody and we have to use solfege to sing it, using the correct pitches and holding the notes for their correct values too.

Band.
Guitar ensemble.
Chorus.
Music theory.
Music appreciation.
If everyone demanded peace, we'd probably have it.

Music is my vice.

I was in band until last year, and I took AP Music Theory last year. I got a 5 on the AP Test, if anyone wants to know.

I hate the fact that we can never get a jazz band started. Nobody wants to do it.

I'm not in band, but I'm in the school's guitar class.

It's a beginners guitar class, so for me, and 90% of the rest of the class, it's a "sit around and play guitar for 90 minutes, and do the occasional worksheet that will take us no longer than 2 minutes" class.
