Taking a week off of tumblr to really focus on schoolwork and music. I should be back on the 28th. Anything that might be posted during that time is queued. Thanks guys!

purrsche asked: OK SO FLICK KEYS LITERALLY SUCK but I mostly use them for A's Through C, but whenever jumping an octave I use it for almost every note until high E

To add on to all of the advice I’ve been getting today, this is also good advice! Thank you!

Can someone help me understand “flick keys”? My teacher tried to explain which notes I should use them for, but I don’t know if I have it right. A brief rundown of flick keys would be nice!

Basically flick keys on Bassoon help you slur to notes at the top of the bass clef…

This is AWESOME advice, I’m definitely going to do this! Thank you!

unl-ck asked: you should flick for top of the staff A, Bb, B, and sometimes C and D. Use the long key (above the C# key) to flick for A, the key above that for B, Bb and C, and the top key for D.

This is super helpful, thank you!

Shout out to all the religious kids who keep their beliefs to themselves in the middle of science class.

shout out also to the atheists who don’t shit on everyone else’s beliefs “because science”

shout out to everyone who can accept science and religion coexisting

shout out to everyone who can treat people with respect despite their differences

If you play/played the bassoon, reblog this.

If I had known that this post existed, I wouldn’t’ve created mine lol.

Fact: Bassoonists and French Horn players made a pact of friendship and camaraderie hundreds of years ago. It lasts to this day.

We don’t know why it’s a thing, but just trust me, it’s a thing.
