When I started violin I had a backup plan if I failed.  I would take up the saxophone.  Meanwhile, my brother's Grand Daughter took up the violin and over many years became well known in the scholastic circles in Philly.  She has just started college.

Out of the blue ....... she takes her graduation money and buys a SAXOPHONE !!!!!!  She practices for 4 days and is accepted for the marching band !!!!!!!!

I guess it is not practical to march with a violin.

Isn't that discrimination.  Keeping violins out of marching bands.  If they let in bag pipes they should let in violins.violin-1267violin-1267violin-1267violin-1267

I'm not sure who is discriminating.  The band or the violins
