Became section leader sophomore year because we didn't have enough skilled players. Always rented my instrument because, my goodness, french horns are expensive. Recently bought a trumpet. Hiding this because the mellos must stay hidden lest they figure out we are actually an instrument. Also was never proud to be a mello, but someone had to do it. Also french horn is best horn

Not proud you say?
I play clarinet and just picked up a mello mid January and I love it.

I love the mello. The small section size (girl in same grade and a freshman that couldn't make 1 note, literally). Wasn't very fun because we always had to tag along with another brass section. Which was fine, but I had to teach my freshie how to play the mello, as one year his senior. But that was really just practice. I loved games and competitions. College Marching Band was the ****. Drank on the bus rides, big section, and everyone was not so cringy. Plus it was more of a family than Highschool Band. But all in all, great instrument, not so great circumstance.

I feel you. At this point I'm a freshman learning mello, and there are only two other girls in the section. One who wants me there a lot and one who doesn't, but we need a section so oh well to her. Hopefully I can do well in this and join drum corps in college. I'm taking private lessons and practicing a ton so I think I'll be okay, at least for marching band next year.



tl;dr can't wait for more band, and to finally play an instrument I enjoy.

Stick with it, it's fun as hell. And if anything, buy a cheap trumpet or something to keep your embouchure and basic skills fresh when you move out on your own. Pawn shops will prob have some for cheap if you aren't buying for quality.

Oh the joy of having your slide get caught, and then basically punching yourself in the mouth with brass knuckles when it got unstuck.
