What instrument do you play?

I know this group is dead. It makes me so sad, since TwoSet is still alive and well. If we want to compare to Reddit, we've got to step up our game!!! I'm new and I'm sure other new people have tried when they joined to revive the group, but it doesn't mean I'm not going to try!

So, I know that a lot of TwoSet fans don't play violin (some don't play instruments at all). I wondering how many members here actually play violin?

I'll start us off. I play piano, and have been for the last 4 years (so, relative amateur). I don't play violin and all I know about it is from TwoSet, though my brother just picked up the violin.

Vibrato for Trumpet

in Brass

Hey all!
This one is mainly a question for high brass but if any other could help me that would be great. I'm in 11th grade and I am a 3rd year trumpet. Right now, we are focusing on marching songs, but after Football season, we mainly play concert songs. One of those is a pretty well known trumpet piece called "A Trumpeter's Lullaby". I normally am a second chair but my band director "surprised me" and gave me solo. I've played it before but never solo. Since I am doing the solo, should I use vibrato at the appropriate times? If so, what method should I use? I obviously wouldn't use the wind speed method. So I would either use my hand or move my jaw slightly. Which one should I use? Let me know!
Thanks!

Just a funny saying. Do you agree?

So at my high school, we have our own orchestra (and band, but Orchestra's better). We only have Violin, Viola, and Cello. So when people talk about Violins and Cellos I simply say: "Violins are too high, Cellos are too low, and Violas are the cream of the Oreo." What's usually the favorite part of the Oreo? The cream! Do you agree?
