  1. Who here has marched for the Blue Devils, Santa Clara Vanguard, or Carolina Crown? Those are my favorite corps and I'd love to hear about your experiences and what you liked or disliked about it. What should I be prepared for when I audition a few years from now?
  2. Nope! Most if the mellophones I've found online come with one though (even though I'll probably buy a new one).
  3. Mellophone would actually be my 5th instrument. The other instruments haven't caused any damage to my skill with my main instrument. If anything it's made me a better musician. My band directors don't let anyone play different instruments. It has nothing to do with me and my oboe or clarinet skills, it's just them being jerks. I know I have a lot of time, but I haven't been this ambitious about something for a while and I'll stop at nothing to make my dream come true. The earlier I start, the better chance I have.
  4. Yeah but if they say no, which I'm pretty sure they will, what model Mellophone should I get (I don't want to play trumpet)?
  5. I was going to try and borrow one but my band directors don't like when anyone plays an instrument other than their main unless you're a double reed during marching season, which I am but I already march Clarinet and I highly doubt they would let me switch. They didn't even put my in the show this year bc I was new to clarinet.
  6. So I'm a woodwind that's really interested in auditioning for DCI in a few years. I'm planning on getting a Mellophone to learn but I don't exactly have a lot of money and I have no idea what brand or model to get. I've heard Yamaha is best. What mouthpiece and Mellophone should I look into buying?
