  1. All this time playing viola and getting asked “is the difference that the viola is just bigger “ I have to explain it like “yes but actually no-“

  2. I've always wondered if the trombone was truly the longest band instrument (was considering the bassoon) and now I know. Yay

    (edit, I ignored strings because I'm a wholesome band guy)

  3. Musicians :
    Violin : Violin
    Viola : Viola
    Cello : Cello

    Non musicians :
    Violin : Violin
    Viola : Big violin
    Cello : Very big cello

  4. HOLD UP A CLARINET IS NOT 1.9 FT THAT WOULD BE A DIFFERENT KIND of clarinet OUT OF TEN SO THAT IS NOT TRUE AND A CLARINET IS LONG LIKE 5 OR 4 FEET BECAUSE I PLAY IT.

  5. They didn’t show the different sizes of flutes
    Piccolo
    Soprano flute
    Alto flute
    Bass flute
    Contrabass flute
