Band Zoo

Last night the fam went to this (honestly fun) thing for the kid’s school where interested students could try out a bunch of band instruments. And we tried them all. Most were woodwinds and brass, but there were also drums and a really cool computer program that lets students record themselves and evaluate the accuracy of their playing. It was held in a multi-purpose room with a high ceiling and lots of hard surfaces so the noise level was deafening. There were moments when it sounded like an orchestra warming up before a performance, but mostly it just sounded like a flock of ducks being trampled by a herd of elephants.
