Ever played so hard that your tenor came off?

Wait, what are drummers supposed to do if this happens in a show?

Did you just call us drummers

Wait, what are “percussionists that get offended by being called a drummer” supposed to do if this happens in a show?

why did they get offended

because this is tumblr

It’s because percussionist play percussions ad drummers play drums. There are more than just drums in percussions.

I love to play percussions! Percussions is my favorite!

IT KEEPS GETTING BETTER

Nobody’s answered the question

Colloquially, being called a “drummer” has a negative connotation, as someone who just hits things that make noise and has somewhat of a sense of rhythm. A “percussionist” is seen more as someone who is trained in the art of percussion, and knows proper techniques. @splantamello

sooo, you don’t hit things that make noise?

This fucking post

But really, what do you do when your tenor falls off?

Being productive!!

I did nothing yesterday because I just needed a day to mentally gather myself.
So today I cleaned my room, ran errands, and bought groceries! Yay food! Still need to go practice, and I really should’ve yesterday, but I just couldn’t do it.

Also, sidenote: Why are all the cute guys coming out of the woodwork now that I’ve decided I need a break from them? *Dramatic sigh*

Music Fact: Classical musicians are 50% more likely to suffer permanent hearing loss than rock musicians. This is almost entirely due to exposure to bass drums; a single orchestral bass drum is louder than an electric guitar at maximum amplification, and provides one-third of the audible power of a standard 75-piece symphony orchestra.

We’re hardcore.

Had deja vu in my lesson today. I felt like my teacher said a few things that were exactly something my first teacher said. 

It was so strange.

But other than that, it was a pretty awesome lesson.
