comment Having trouble memorizing intervals in ear training
100% agree on the singing. Practice singing up chromatically (in half steps) and diatonically (in the scale) from the first note to the second note. You could also learn Solfege! That helped me some, too. Oh and to distinguish between P4 and P5, I'd just see if I could hear "1, 4, 3" (Do, Fa, Mi) in my head.

comment Which wind instruments are a problem with braces?
@aparente001 I think so, but I can ask a few clarinet and sax friends today at school to make sure. Percussion is a safe bet for sure though; I'm not a true percussionist, but I taught myself drum set for fun and my playing wasn't affected at all by my braces. :)

comment Is it harder to play in a key with more flats or sharps?
Yes, this is true. Beginner French horn students read in the key of F a lot, so when they read the key of C, they tend to accidentally play Bb. On the other hand, beginner orchestra members (orchestras favor sharp keys) who read in the key of F will likely have to consciously remind themselves to play Bb and not B natural. It's all about what you're used to working in, because you're technically just working from a mental "default" and altering that whenever you play in a key with more sharps or flats than you are accustomed to.

revised Does the bass always have to harmonise with the lead?
The question does not really fit the [Harmonics] tag.

comment How to perform trombone solo? (improvisation)
If the reason why you play the trombone in jazz band and not the euphonium is because your directors want trombones (traditional jazz instrument) and not euphoniums in the jazz band, would they really want a euphonium solo when a trombone solo is expected? I don't know what your band program is like, but if an oboe kid playing sax in jazz band might be allowed to switch to oboe for their improv, then go ahead and ask. Otherwise, I'd just take advantage of the opportunity to improve on my jazz instrument, depending on how much time I had to prepare and how question-friendly the directors were.

comment Αre these three dots over a note supposed to be staccato?
Ah is that what it is? The 3 simply indicates subdivision (like the slash), not triplets? (I guess I know a lot less than I thought I did.)

@alephzero Ah thank you! I will edit my answer. I should have fact-checked rather than relying solely on how this stuff was explained to me.
