I'm new to stack exchange and I'm not sure where to ask my question so I decided that this would be the best place to ask my question.
So I'm in grade 9 and I've played percussion(mallets, drums, and auxiliary) for my whole life now. After our band got past all the beginner stuff and began moving into more complex compositions, me and my section(the percussion section) don't really play a lot. In fact, during our last practice, I played for like 2 minutes for our entire 75 minute music class. Ever since, I've considered moving to a wind instrument. I've never touched a wind instrument in my life, but one of my strengths is setting goals; so in my belief, I feel that I would be able to get a sound and catch up to the rest of band over the winter break. I just want to ask your opinions on what I should do next, and if I were to choose to play a wind instrument; which one should I pick up? I'm looking for something that would be easy to articulate and learn for someone who has zero prior experience with wind instruments.
Thanks for reading.
