My name is Sarah, or my longstanding nickname of Moose. I'm an 18 year old scene designer. I worked in my high school for the past 3 years and went to North Carolina School of the Arts for the past fall term before I had to transfer out for personal and financial reasons. So now I'm living in upstate New York, hitting up a community college in the spring to get those blasted academics out of the way, and then attending Purchase this coming fall. I stumbled across this site and thought why not!
Other than theatre (like there IS anything else?), I'm also a slam poet and I'm going to be marching with the Syracuse Brigadiers (Drum Corps) this summer. So I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself!

Well, I got it when i was in 8th grade, it's got two sources. One is because my first instrument was the oboe and it sounds like a dying moose if you can't play it right. The other is because I eat like a moose, and someone manage to not gain weight. I'm sure it will all catch up to me in my 40's.

your marching with Syracuse Brigadiers. Are you a percussionist or a brass. I've played percussion for 8 years.

Actually, I'm doing color guard! I did color guard in high school and when my instructor told me about Brigs (cause she works with them too) I just couldn't resist.

Do you march DCA/DCI?

Problem with the oboe is you have to tune it and make your own reeds ! One of the coolest things I'v ever seen was a 5 th grader making her own reeds one day at a band camp I used to teach at.

I used to make my own reeds at that age too. Oh man, that was fun. I still have some of my reeds and I haven't played oboe in almost 2 years. And just for humor, here's two of my favorite oboe jokes

How do you define a minor second?
Two oboes playing in unison.

How do you tune two oboes?
shoot one.

Band nerd jokes...I could go on for miles.

How many drummers does it take to change a light bulb?

10, one to hold the light bulb in the socket and the other nine to drink until the room spins.


Poor drummers always seem to be the butt of every joke...

Could it have anything to do with personality? Or that an untuned kit sounds like a**?

And for the record, I do play drums, and piano, and guitar.
And I'm not really that bad of a person...I think.
