Anything else you wish to say: I'm getting ready to be section leader for our marching band(which has won Arkansas Open for the past 7 years). I'm the pit percussion section leader, so I don't march. My favorite time of year is preparing for our spring concerts, so that I can crack out the alto and play my heart out. I am having a really tough time deciding what college to go to. I lust after University of Texas at Austin, but I have a feeling I'm going to Arkansas State, here in my hometown. I want to major in music composition, because even though I love playing the music, I know there would be no one playing if there wasn't anyone there to write it. It's my dream to be the one to write from my soul and have people say I'm their favorite composer.

I'm a Frank Ticheli and Eric Whitacre fanatic..

that's pretty much me in a nutshell!

Okay. So I am not actually majoring in music.

I'm still not sure what career path to take. I do have my schedule geared toward a music minor. If I change my mind, I won't be too far behind. I can change it into a major. I'm just at that point where I have an interest in everything.

I used to think I would be a marine biologist. Then a geologist. Then a civil enginner. Then a structural engineer. Then a music major. Then I started to shift, so I'm clinging to music.

There seem to be lots of trombones here, so I realize I'm going to get answers weighted toward the.... um.... brass heavy, but what were some of your favorite pieces to play in band or orchestra?  What are some favorite solos?  Since I don't play, it would be helpful if you listed them, and then also "graded" them by putting if it's a beginner, intermediate or advanced part/piece.  I'll be good with the band and orchestra pieces, but the solos..... no.  I claim woodwind exemption!
